I've been developing and working with WP sites for 5 years now and have never ever run into a piece of code more stubborn and troublesome than the comments form. Honest to God, I think there maybe something wrong with the core code because I have followed every which way to change the fields and customize it to my liking and no matter how I try to change the fields argument, the damn thing will not change.

I'm currently using WP version 3.4.1. I'm using a custom template for the comments and calling the form using comments_form($arg). Every other argument is being accepted, however mf'ing 'fields' argument will not take heed no matter which way I try to write the f'ing code wft?

Anybody have this problem?
