Hi, all!

I just noticed that the functionality of commenting articles at the web
page has been misused by morons advertising for online poker and online
blackjack and online roulette. It's possible that this 'comments' are
added to the web site through a virus on some users machines, since the
comment is added from several different IPs all over the world.

To fix this, I have disabled the functionality for adding comments for
non members. If you want to make a comment, you have to log in. In that
way I will at least have the email address of anyone misusing the
system, and it will not be simple to make an abusive virus.

I have also removed all the abusive 'comments' from the blog, of course.

This abuse cost me some work, and it's also taking away the possibility
for non members with good intentions to comment.

I also hope that all the users of GNU Backgammon can stay away from
services offered by the jerks. These are:

Free Casino Games
Free Internet Games
Free Poker Online
Texas Holdem Poker
Online Blackjack
Gammon Empire
and others

Stay away from these!
