I had this in the Headlines this morning, but the problems are continuing, so I’ll write a quick post rather than try to answer all of the e-mails we’re getting today.  Neither Allahpundit nor I have banned anyone overnight.  If you’re getting a message that says, “You are not allowed to leave comments,” it’s probably related to same database maintenance that took place overnight.  The best advice I can offer right now is to clear your browser cache and log in again fresh.  I believe that’s working for at least some of our commenters.

We may have more on this later, if the problem continues.  Meanwhile, the issue is almost certainly not banning.
