No. You haven’t been banned from my comments boxes

…unless you are one of a tiny minority of shrieking and shrill rudebys who were given fair warning and then booted for persisting in being shrieking and shrill rudesbys. If you are not among these, and are still getting the message you’ve been banned, it’s because of some weird software glitch which I hope to square up with Haloscan soon. Sorry!

In the meantime, do me a favor and email me if Haloscan tells you you’re banned. It will help with the diagnosis.

Update: It seems to only affect AOL users. Weird.
