Update: 2:15 p.m. We're happy to announce that our article commenting function is once again working properly and that commenting on stories has been restored.
We were having problems earlier. A technical glitch prompted our website to allow anonymous comments — which violates our commenting policy. As many readers of this site know, we decided last year to ban anonymous and pseudonymous comments on EastBayExpress.com. See our full explanation here.
Thanks for your patience. We apologize again for the inconvenience.
