Comment Editing Disabled [FIXED]

Hopefully, just a temporary issue.

The Comment Editing Core plugin that enables non-logged in users to edit their comments was causing a critical error with the site, so I’ve disabled it until our tech guy can look into it.

UPDATE: He cleaned up the issue and the plugin (and presumably functionality) is restored.

    I get that message all the time. If it continues, you might want to get screened for Parkinson’s or some other tremor related issue. That’s what causes me to be able to click and reclick fast enough to trigger that message.

    Well at least the system lets us make comments. For that much I am certainly grateful. ETA this is the first time my system made me log into authenticator to come back here. But it just increases my entertainment Factor
