Doh! I forgot to announce the fix for that! I discovered the problem on Friday, but I didn’t have time to write it up, and then later I forgot about it.

At the end of tfs-pirate.php, change the final if statement. Instead of

  add_filter('all','pirate');

Do:

  add_filter('the_content','pirate');
  add_filter('comment_text','pirate');

Or just re-download the package, I've updated it with the fix.
