A week ago, Allahpundit informed Hot Air commenters that suddenly found themselves locked out of their accounts that a software upgrade had caused the problem, and not a surge of banning activity from your friendly Hot Air bloggers.  We’ve continued to get e-mail from some commenters suggesting that the issues have continued through this weekend.  If for some reason you’re not able to comment, try clearing your browser cache and then your existing Hot Air cookie.  The software upgrade has probably made it obsolete.

If that doesn’t work …. we can always blame Sitemeter.
