I don’t think anyone ever reads these comment but I’m gonna try again. I open the website, I click on a story, you ask me to log in. I do so and start reading the story about Harpootlian, in the story you have a link that will tell me a little about Russell Ott, I click on it then try to go back to the original story. You want me to login again ! And on and on and on. Can’t you fix that?
