Commenting



So. I did something dumb. I changed over to the new Blogger Beta - they keep advertising it around when you sign in to Blogger. Damn them!

Now - I can't comment on blogs that don't run in the new Blogger Beta - and I don't think anyone can sign in to comment with their Blogger account on this blog. They can only comment anonymously. Also, someone told me they've been trying to comment and nothing has been showing up at all. This is just irritating. And there is no way to undo the beta-ness.

Of course, Blogger, doesn't tell you any of this as you're going through the process of converting.

So, I, like a feckless guinea pig walked right into their web of inconvenience.

My apologies to those of you who might want to comment and can't - do feel free to comment anonymously. Oh, and be sure to be good and nasty. So I can, in the words of any random idiotic right wing talk show host, "fire back."

I love the word feckless!

I caved and got a google acct so I think I can comment everywhere now. But we'll see in a minute!

Would you delete my post, nicole? Fucking beta won't let me....

I'd heard that was a problem with beta blogger, so I didn't succumb.

I love that picture. Good and pissed off.

Feckless is an excellent word, I agree

I haven't moved over to the new beta version yet - so here's another test.

That baby is my new mascot. Love that look of sheer ire. Perfect.

Feckless is a fun and sadly underused word!

It appears that many of you can comment. I'm not sure what the issue is with others. And I can, of course, comment on my own blog as myself. Wonderful.

This beta bit isn't much betta. (HA!) I keep hearing about this and I haven't heard many happy voices ringing out into the blogging night.

I hope you can reign this sucker in and OWN it. :)

Ouch! I was gonna switch but now I am glad I did not just yet. I am sure they will work it all out.

Love the pic BTW!

Penny said...

That picture is priceless and describes my mood perfectly some days.

I hope you get your beta problems worked out.

I'm not beta and I commented with my name. It works I guess.

The picture cracks me up!!

Megan said...

I changed over to the beta also. So I can't comment on some people's as well. I'm been using the "other" or "annonymous" option.

I have two accounts which happened by accident. I didn't realize that there was a beta blogger and a blogger, and so I have one account on blogger which has a link in my profile to my real blog and then I have my beta blogger account which I started with. It had me pretty confused for quite some time though...
