My hosting site has implemented some sort of security that causes you to put a code into CAPTCHA to “prove you are human” when commenting here. So far they are refusing to stop doing that. So it looks like I will have to move us to a new home again. This sucks and is a total PITA. And could not have possibly happened when I am less in the mood.
I apologize for the inconvenience, and will look for a more suitable host ASAP. In the meantime, I regret there is nothing I can do.
