It was brought to my attention a few weeks ago that some folks were having difficulty commenting on my blog. After a lot of head scratching and puzzling, I finally figured out that one of my anti-comment spam plugins conflicted with the plugin that allows people to use Open ID. I have deactivated the anti-spam plugin (as I’ve got another one), so hopefully this will alleviate the problem. For those of you who’ve had difficulties commenting here before, please try again and let me know if this didn’t fix it! Thanks for bearing with me. I’m a total newb at all of this self-hosted stuff.
