Fixing The Comments by Removing ‘Luv

A bit of a short one today. Recently Quietschisto brought to my attention a problem that I am now certain has existed a long time. Probably since very shortly after setting up last year in fact. It was pretty well invisible to me as from my side everything was working just fine. The issue will
