Sorry about the delayed response, I've been working on an overhaul of the theme admin area and widget styling systems. All themes from Comaxium (being released in a few hours) onward will have the new system, with more changes and improvements coming along the way. I will also be gradually working my way back through existing themes to upgrade them to the new system.
As to your problem; I believe I have found the solution. If it works, please post the results here to let other club members with the same issue know how to solve it.
Here it is:
In "loop.php" on line 165, use the /* */ comment block inside the php tags:
165| <?php comments_template( '', true ); ?>
165| <?php /* comments_template( '', true ); */ ?>
Hopefully that helps!
