For the past two weeks the site has been hit with hundreds of spam comments; hopefully, you haven’t noticed anything. However, today the traffic has started to drag down the site.
So we have turned on a system requirement that makes you to have to authenticate to post a comment. Hopefully this is very temporary.
If you want to post a comment, you
have to get a username and password from Type Key, a free authentication service that lets you sign-in to many sites across the web. Or you can email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we can post it for you.
Sorry for any inconvenience.
