Working on the comments currently. I'd love some feedback on the mix of font colours in this shot and if you think they adversely affect the intended hierarchy? I'll probably increase the size of the heading (2 Responses...) a little to distinguish it.
I'm just not sure if it's too busy, colour wise?

I find the red/rust colour a bit hard to read on the dark background. Looks good other than that though.
Thanks, Jeff. Is it a case of the red just being too dark or is it more of a clash with the background that would require a different hue rather than a brighter revision?
I agree, the burgundy is touch on my eyes. Don't really have a suggestion since I don't know where you're going with this.
Thanks Greg, I'll be changing it. The majority of the the page is dark, the red is used sparingly for certain links and highlights. You can see the basic colour scheme here: http://tileabl.es/soon/

I've lightened the colour and tried a text shadow on the meta which matches the comment content. Here we have the same lighter colour, above without the shadow and below with the shadow.
I've noticed that not only does the shadowless version appear lighter in colour, it also looks significantly bolder. This is in Chrome though and Webkit antialiasing hasn't been applied yet.
Is this any better? If so, which one looks better on your display? It may be different to what I'm seeing as the previous shot wasn't bergundy on my screen but a pretty mid-range red. Maybe time to calibrate.
