Every invitees' name is hidden when I check the filtering box

The code seems to be working fine, no bugs, however when I check the filtering box every name get hidden. Here's the code :

const form = document.getElementById('registrar');
const input = form.querySelector('input');
const mainDiv = document.querySelector('.main');
const ul = document.getElementById('invitedList');

const div = document.createElement('div');
const filterLabel = document.createElement('label');
const filterCheckbox = document.createElement('input');

filterLabel.textContent = "Hide those who haven't responded";
filterCheckbox.type = 'checkbox';
mainDiv.insertBefore(div, ul);

// An event listener on the filterCheckbox allowing to filter out the 
// not confirmed invitees' names
filterCheckbox.addEventListener('change', (e) => {
    const isChecked = e.target.checked;
    const lis = ul.children;
    if (isChecked) {
        for (let i = 0; i < lis.length; i++) {
            let li = lis[i];
            if (li.className === 'responded') {
                li.style.display = '';
            } else {
                li.style.display = 'none';
    } else {
        for (let i = 0; i < lis.length; i++) {
            let li = lis[i];
            li.style.display = '';

function createLI(text) {
    const li = document.createElement('li');
    li.textContent = text;
    const label = document.createElement('li');
    label.textContent = 'Confirmed';
    const checkbox = document.createElement('input');
    checkbox.type = 'checkbox';

    const editButton = document.createElement('button');
    editButton.type = 'edit';

    const removeButton = document.createElement('button');
    removeButton.type = 'remove';

    return li;

form.addEventListener('submit', (e) => {
    const text = input.value;
    // Whenever the input var value is assign to text, 
    // we then want to empty the input var content. 
    input.value = '';
    const li = createLI(text);
// what happens when the checkbox is checked
ul.addEventListener('change', (e) => {
    const checkbox = event.currentTarget;
    const checked = checkbox.checked;
    const listItem = checkbox.parentNode.parentNode;
    if (checked) {
        listItem.className = 'responded';
    } else {
        listItem.className = '';
// what happens when the remove button is clicked
ul.addEventListener('click', (e) => {
    if (e.target.tagName === 'BUTTON') {
        const button = e.target;
        const li = e.target.parentNode;
        const ul = li.parentNode;
        if (button.textContent === 'remove') {
        } else if (e.target.textContent === 'edit') {
            const span = li.firstElementChild;
            const input = document.createElement('input');
            input.type = 'text';
            input.value = span.textContent;
            li.insertBefore(input, span);
            button.textContent = 'save';
        } else if (e.target.textContent === 'save') {
            const input = li.firstElementChild;
            const span = document.createElement('span');
            span.textContent = input.value;
            li.insertBefore(span, input);
            button.textContent = 'edit';

If you make a snapshot of your workspace and post the link to it here, we could see the issue in operation.

I did look the code over but didn't spot anything obvious, and I'd drop by and help if you were next door. :wink:
But if you upload the project into a workspace and provide a snapshot link, I can check it out that way.
