Assuming I've not actually been banned, it appears that Mere Comments is having server problems preventing me from posting my comments on the Born Anyway thread.
I'm posted my latest comments here.
I'll try to re-post later them at Mere Comments; if successful, I'll delete this post.
Update: Based on James' comments, it looks like I've been banned. Any interested posters from Mere Comments are welcome to continue the discussion here.
Update II: I haven't been banned! It looks like whatever was happening was due to a technical issue that has been resolved. I'm closing comments on this thread, but I'll keep the post up for historical accuracy.
