The Obama administration is anxious to post big Obamacare enrollment numbers as quickly as possible, so it’s not going to like Consumer Reports’ sage advice to “stay away from for at least another month if you can” while the programmers work out the “glitches” that have perhaps kept millions from creating accounts.

Among other advice, Consumer Reports cautions readers to “immediately try a different name, password, and/or security questions” if trouble arises while creating a username and password. Some are still reporting that they are unable to log into their own accounts because of a “name and email address aren’t unique” error.

Will these problems finally be ironed out in another month? Can you wait that long?
