Commenting

Apparently there is yet another glitch in blogger beta. As far as I can tell, you cannot comment on a beta blog if you are signed into Blogger but have not switched to beta yourself.

The solution seems to be either to switch to beta (forced mass marketing) or to sign in under a different server than the one you use for Blogger.

Or just send me a comment and I'll post it myself.

I was wondering whether I was simply boring everyone into disappearing.

There are other commenting glitches, too, even when you are on beta, but they seem inconsistent.

It's a pain. This is approximately the first anniversary of the Great AOL Advertising Debacle that brought many of us to Blogger in the first place. At the time, I was as frustrated by the glitches in the system changes that made it impossible for me to post anything at all for several days as I was irritated by the advertising. And here we are again.

This morning I changed my Google Account and added my purple face to it, so hopefully this will enable me to get around better! It is indeed a major frustration. Most of the Blogger blogs I'm associated with are group blogs, so making a change is not a small thing.

I tried to setup a blog here months ago and ran into too many problems. Sometimes I don't get the "word verification letters" and have to reload the page, other times it doesn't work even when properly typed.

It is frustrating even to be just a visitor without a login account.

You pretty much said it all, but the idea of moving the blog again is just more than I can handle.

For the first week after I changed, I had to sign in to Google twice before I could comment (I did it anyway because I'm just so loyal). Now, all of a sudden, I can comment anywhere easily.

I will see if this works. I tried this on Cynthia's blog, and it published... But of course, all it published was the one where I typed, "testing, testing."

At this point, I'm kind of glad I stuck with AOL...
