It curtailed our ability to use this blog as an interactive one. Planned blog posts were put on hold pending a fix.

All old comments that were previously visible are now visible again. New comments will now come through for moderation. It is likely, however, that any comments made by anyone over the past few months when the comments function was not working have been lost. We are sorry if this is the case.
We are though now back in business at the Crofting Law Blog. Just as well as there have been some interesting crofting law developments of late and we can also now post several outstanding blog posts that had been on hold.
