 Project:      Drupal
 Version:      cvs
 Component:    blog.module
 Category:     bug reports
 Priority:     normal

 Status:       patch

This message was placed in blog.module for consistency with
forum.module, which also informs users when they cannot post:
/from forum.module in CVS HEAD:/
else if ($user->uid) {
      $output .= '<li>'. t('You are not allowed to post a new forum
topic.') .'</li>';
If you remove this message from blog.module, please remove it from
forum.module as well.

In user pages we now tell users thye cannot post blogs if they have not
got proper permissions. This is incosistant with other modules (if you
have not got permissions for adding recipies it does not tell you so in
your profile, and it should not.)
Thus i suggest we simply remove it. See attached patch.
