Just what is going wrong with the online comments section?

After complaints about biased management and moderating of their online website's comments section, with accusations that the MEN web team could be seen to foster a climate of bullying and thuggishness, things seem to be getting worse there.
Not only are they censoring, by refusing to post comments from some  readers, but now, when people try to log in they get this message:

"Sorry, logins have been temporarily disabled"

How intriguing!

Rather makes a mockery of their claim to be "your favourite newspaper"

Update: Well, well, well, the Express has started publishing my posts again and has restored log-ins for all. 
It will be interesting to see if they take action on the bullies, sock puppets and thugs as well  from now on
