    I had the same problem a few days ago, I submitted my username and swore that I wasn’t a spammer and got back in the other day. Not sure what the glitch is but hopefully it gets fixed soon

    Been wondering where some of the posters have been.

    Having trouble with my computer login saying it’s a spammer, though my tablet doesn’t have any problems.

    AprilJoy here. I created a new login. It works on my tablet, only. Did anyone get the form to fill out and to kindly ask to be added to the White List? I have sent a request in twice and also an email but never heard back.

    Interesting. No login required to post a comment to an article on the “front” page. Yet seems like many folk are locked out of the discussions on the forum.

    I haven’t been able to post from my phone, which I use for 90% of my web surfing, but apparently I’m able to log on from my work computer. I’m even locked out of the front page where, as Shelly pointed out, no log in is required.

    I’ve filled out the form 3 times and sent an email with no response.

    I’m getting kind of tire of MB anyway, so if I’m never heard of again I guess it’ll mean I didn’t get white-listed.

    I sure wish we had a site that was the caliber of West Seattle Blog in our neck of the woods.

    I did fill out the form and eventually got back in after a few days (three I think), I never got a reply just was able to login one day.

    Apologies everyone, it’s a rather stringent anti-spam system, and I’m working to get folks approved. Will get another batch done..

    Update: Just whitelisted everyone who filled out the form. Very oddly, it kicked into high gear over the last few days, and it shouldn’t block existing users. I loosened up the spam restrictions so that shouldn’t happen as often. Again, apologies.

    BTW, it has rejected 32,106 bot spam attempts since the beginning of the year.

    Thanks again for your patience!

    Thanks, Geeky Swedes – I was really surprised to discover I was one of those who’d been blocked! I was wondering why things had become so quiet around here.

    Back! And just in time, so that I could tell everyone to go shopping at PFI (mondoman’s chick pea thread).
