Somehow, a plugin I hadn’t used in ages was still running and shut down readers’ ability to comment. I didn’t realize it until just now, because I’ve posted so little over the holiday, but if you tried to comment over the last week or so, and couldn’t, that’s why.
By the way, I’ve posted more than it seems, but it’s not visible right now except on the Arr Ess Ess feed. For reasons which will be clear in a little while.
Until then… stay warm, and enjoy your holidays if you have some!
