A note for commenters on links

Posted By on Sat, Aug 24, 2013 at 6:56 AM

Reports began coming in last night about problems with a change to the program that operates our blogging system.

The designer has strengthened protocol on use of links in reader comments as a means to discourage spamming.

Unfortunately, it's not working right.

The new protocol is not supposed to affect members who've been registered for 30 days.  New members can't post active links for 30 days. Also, if a comment has been removed, that will cause a temporary suspension of active linking privileges.

I can't remember the last comment I removed of an established member.

Nonetheless, long-time members with clean records are not being able to post active links.

I've messaged the support people about this problem and labeled it urgent. But I can't predict how quickly we can get this fixed.

I feel your pain.

  • The fall of Boehner

    Nothing so became U.S. Rep. John Boehner's tenure as speaker of the House as his manner of leaving it. Subjectively speaking, he has never appeared to believe very much of the nonsense his position required him to utter. An old school politician who literally grew up working in the family bar, his conservatism is of the traditional Midwestern kind — more Bob Dole, say, than Ted Cruz.
  • Warrior

    As a young man, Ted Holder helped Arkansas take some of its first steps toward LGBT equality.
  • Huckawho? Ex-gov is yesterday's flavor

    Given the wild gyrations of the Republican presidential nominating race, I write these words knowing that a future meal of them remains possible, but nonetheless: Mike Huckabee is toast.
  • First Nixon, then Boehner

    Like Richard Nixon's resignation speech 41 years earlier, John Boehner's sudden valedictory from Congress may be said to be the old politician's finest moment.
  • Razorbackula and a tour through the police blotter

    A certain morbid curiosity about crime is one of the few silver linings of living in a place where the per capita crime rate rivals even the shystiest hellhole corners of the country. So that’s our topic for the week, crime reporting.
