Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers

It seems the talkback system was on the fritz yesterday and overnight. Our system for killing comment spam had apparently gotten a bit crazed, and decided that every attempted post is spam.

Please don't take it personally; it blocked me too.

I notified the appropriate code gurus and they were able to fix it quickly after arriving at work this morning. It seems the problem occured because Jupitermedia is resetting all of its URLs to "www..." The comment spam blocker was screening for talkbacks from just "linuxtoday.com," not "www.linuxtoday.com," hence the glitch.

Our sincerest apologies for the inconvenience.
