A number of people have contacted me to report that when they've tried to do various things here, like click on the Comments section or just come to the site in the first place, have been redirected to a donation page.
I can't reproduce this glitch from here. If it has happened to you, it's not something I've done or am doing on purpose—it's an unknown bug of some sort within the site software. (It's also a particular glitch I've never seen before, and I thought I'd seen 'em all.)
I've opened a "Help Ticket" with TypePad and we'll try to chase the problem down. In the meantime, sorry for any inconvenience.
This might be a good time to mention that if you've ever signed up to make a small recurring donation—in the "Subscribe" panel in the right-hand sidebar—and then later had your subscription cancelled, that's not me. I would have no reason to cut off anyone who is contributing to the site! It's something PayPal does on its own, spontaneously and apparently randomly, for no reason that anyone can perceive. I've tried several times to chase the problem down with PayPal, and have never gotten anywhere. They're doing it but they can't explain why. There doesn't seem to be anything I can do about it, except maybe try to find an alternate method for accepting donations.
So if that ever happened to you and you're mystified about it, well, me too. Thanks for trying anyway!
