Changed things a little bit...

Because I've started writing my soliloquies again, I've changed permissions again for new users. Anonymous users are allowed to post again, as are recently-authenticated users, but all posts are moderated unless you're part of the "Contributor", "Barnsons", or "Moderator" groups.

There's only one moderator besides me. If you're an honorary Barnson, you know who you are. There are no Contributors yet... those will be any folks who I don't want to be able to host a blog here, but who are active enough to warrant posting without moderation.

Also going through and deleting massive numbers of spam accounts from my system. At a rate of approximately 6 to 10 new spam accounts per day since 2001, the user database has gotten huge.
