Comment Update

I've been assured that, as of today, some technical fixes have been implemented that should make commenting easier. In particular, they should get rid of the nasty bug where the system says you're logged in but won't let you comment. Let me know how it goes by commenting fast and furiously.

Test-posting, since I'd been having trouble...

Ezra, did you get this fixed site-wide? It's been the most ridiculous mess, and it's still queer. If you're logged in (username shown at top of site), why isn't that the same as "signed in"?

Still, hail all-powerful Bloggers @MSM!

Fast and furiously. Fast and furiously . . .

This has me boggled too. I heard way back that The Washington Post (trees and salaries) is a different company than the Web Washington Post (no trees, less salaries), so I suspect that the trees version thinks you are logged in, but the web version swears you are not. What kind of MSM insanity is this?

As of two minutes ago, I was logged into trees but not logged into web. At least it warned me that I wasn't. Maybe WaPo needs some reorganized management structure (and perhaps some of Geither's stimulus to pay for it).

Anyway, have a good weekend Ezra, even if you have to come back to the vagaries of being a 'voice' instead of a 'columist' or 'op-eder. Do they voices in the wilderness have a 'collective bargaining agent' (can't use the U-word here, I'm sure)?

Some additional boggling: a webblog that won't recognize the html tags for italics, emphasis, or external links?

Oh, I get it. This is a 'voices' place, but no too much commenter voice is allowed.

Excellent. The world can once again know my reactions to your reactions to health policy.

Hooray! All praise to Ezra for fixing the comments!

Love what you're doing here, keep it up.

I thought I was the only one. Glad it has been fixed.

YES! Thanks.

This is a test of the emergency comment system. Had this been an actual comment emergency, you would have seen cogent commentary on the main post, provoking further comments from others. As it is, this is merely a test.
