Look at the screen capture I made below -- and the arrow I used to point to what I'm talking about. There's the initials "EHS" (or, perhaps "EAS") that almost seem like it was hand written, which is very odd. And then, there's an entry box. What the heck is that? It wasn't there before.
I know Chicago Indymedia has a similar box that automatically fills in browser cookie information so that a returning poster can edit a post.
Portland Indymedia, you need to honor full disclosure here. What's going on?
