I also wanted to weigh in on the issue of not being able to comment. I don't get an "access denied" page, nor do I get anything at all. I will click the button "+ Add a Comment," and nothing happens. By nothing, I mean absolutely, positively nothing will happen. It's as if I clicked on a URL page that simply has the # character to make a dead-end link, that does nothing. (example: maximumpc.com/#.html)
The two articles I tried to comment on were the following:http://www.maximumpc.com/article/how-to ... ource_codehttp://www.maximumpc.com/article/18_key ... op_storage
The only way in which I am able to comment is by replying to someone else's post on an article... I realize someone is working on it, I think, but I thought I would let you guys know what's happening on my end, as my fuck-ups are a bit different than the original post here.
