Unable to add comments to any post except 1 custom category WordPress


We are about 2 days away from launching our site and i just discovered that you are not able to add comments to any posts aside from the one custom post type that we have. I spoke with the theme designer and he said its not an issue with his theme, i have disabled all plugins in hopes that that would solve my problem but it has not.

If i switch the theme to Twenty-Eleven and go to a post it tells me that comments are closed.

I have verified that the Add Comments box is checked on the posts im testing.

Im hoping one of you gentlemen will be able to tell me what i have set wrong to not allow people to comment on anything except reviews.
