Description of problem:

When writing a date in a comment field, such as when I typed the text seen in the first screenshot, something tries to parse the date. When this fails, the entire comment is replaced with “Invalid date”.

Step 1: Submit a comment on an observation, containing a date

Step 2: Wait a few seconds
