My login issues hit again last evening (2-3 times) and again this evening (repeatedly).
I am using the latest version of Firefox.
I typed my username and my password, hit the button, and my username and password disappear from the entry fields, and I get the message: "You must enter your email or username, and your password."
Cleared cookies, closed/reopened the browser, tried again, same problem.

Rinse. Repeat. Rinse. Repeat.
Went back to using Firefox and I just kept leaving/deleting cookies, closing/reopening the browser, whatever/whatever, and after a dozen or so attempts, I was finally able to get in. Then, as a test, I immediately logged right back out and tried to log in again... had the same problem... got the same error message... took almost ten minutes of messing around with it before I was finally able to get back in.
I'm not having this issue on any other site, just here at TS. There seems to be some issue reading and/or writing to the session cookie and/or capturing the text from the two entry fields. I can get the same error message by trying to log in without providing a username or password so it's like my login information is being ignored.
At least I can get in after going back and forth with it for 5-10 minutes, which is better than having to wait for hours like I had to the other day.
Just passing it along... and I've hidden all my sharp pencils. ;-)
