MO is undergoing maintenance and upgrades. Comments will be closed for the weekend. Sorry for the inconvenience.
UPDATE: There might be some weirdness here over the next couple of days. Don’t worry about it. Everything will be back to normal (such as it is) as soon as possible.
UPDATE 2 (Sunday afternoon): Okay. Comments are reopened.
You will notice that signing in via TypeKey is now an option. I encourage you to do so if you have an account, and to get yourself a free TypeKey account if you don’t as I will probably be implementing required registration in the near future. I’ve been holding out against it, but things have been a mess in the comments section lately and I’d like to straighten it out. Regulars will be marked ‘Trusted’ and will not only be published immediately, they won’t be restricted from posting multiple comments in quick succession. This has been a complaint of some some regulars.
Also, each comment now has a peramlink so you can link directly to it if you feel the need.
TypeKey seems pretty painless. If you have strong feelings one way or the other about it, please let me know.
