Apologies for the delay in registering new commenters…

This is partly to do with me being in a different time zone (ie, Washington) and partly to do with a spam attack on our registration process. It has nothing to do with the 4IP funding, as the Atticus column in the Sunday Times has suggested. In fact we hope that when the new site is with us in the next few weeks, that it will speed up and open up the commenting process more than it has been in this slow, slightly ‘provisional’ state we’ve been in for a few months now…
