Fixed: issue/bug with adding new Friendica friends
We noticed that after an upgrade adding new friends was not possible. We found that the problem was not related to Friendica itself. The problem was due to a restrictive setting on our back end nginx web server to keep out spam bots.
Despite posting an apology and claiming that it will "work on internal procedures," the ripples caused by Facebook's real-name policy spread wider and wider. More groups are being affected, and the hubbub has chummed the waters, ending in more accounts suspended in what has become a cultural cyber-war.
