Anyone else out there having trouble commenting on posts lately?
For me, it started about 3 weeks ago. I have been unable to leave my usual witty and heartfelt comments (like “Show me your Hoo-Ha’s!”, for instance) on about 20 percent of the blogs that I normally read.
It actually started before I left for vacation. I had checked the Blogger Help forums at the time, and it looked like a lot of people were affected and that they were working on it.
Well, it’s now been almost a month and I’m still having a right bitch of a time leaving comments sometimes.
On SOME blogs, after I write my comment and hit submit, it takes me to the blogger log-in screen (like I wasn’t logged in, even though I am!). Then I log in again, and it takes me back to my comment which has not yet been posted. Then I hit “submit” again, and have to log in again, which takes me back to my comment again, where I can hit “submit” again. And again. And again.
Well, I for one am going to take a stand and state now for the record that this new log in procedure sucks! So far I’ve clicked the “submit” button about 4,000 times and I still haven’t been able to leave a comment yet. This is by far the best online security feature I have ever seen!
Anyway, I’ve done some more digging on the forums, and for those of you who DON’T know, the problem seems to be with blogs that don’t pop up a new window when you try to leave your comments. Frankly, I don’t know why everyone doesn’t pop up a new window, like I do here, cause it’s much easier in my opinion, but those of you hard-asses who don’t have a pop up are the ones causing all the trouble.
I’d like to say that Blogger is working on a fix, but they probably aren’t since it’s been going on for weeks now and no admin ever replies on the forums. Some people have said that if you uncheck the “remember me” checkbox, that will fix the problem for now, but I’m doubtful. I’m also devilishly handsome, but I fear that’s not going to help me this time.
Anyway, I’ll try the “remember me” thingy today as I do my weekly blog-reading-roundup, but if you don’t get a comment from me again this week, that’s why.
So, you can either change your blog to have your comment box pop up in a new window, or NOT have me hit on you and tell you how hot you are in your in your comments until this is resolved. Which would be a shame for you guys…. I know how me showing you some attention really brightens up your day.
