The guestbook now works again. The remaining trouble with the blank
error message was actually my fault; it was a stupid typo.

However, the problem with the sig expiring still stands. Hopefully
LiveJournal will get a bigger expiry time at some point. Until then,
users who are using LJ for an identity server must enter their message

I'm also occasionally getting back some strange errors, but perhaps

The guestbook is now, I believe, a suitable consumer to test "dumb" mode
against. You don't actually need to post a comment as all of the auth

form. Part of the verification is repeated when the form is submitted,
but nothing that hasn't already been done for the previous request.

Of course, you can leave a message if you like. :)
