I have noticed recently on a number of other blogs that I follow that the Blogger platform is getting more and more unfriendly when I try to comment. What usually happens is this:
Fired with enthusiasm to comment on someone else’s profound thoughts on life, the universe and everything I compose a thoughtful response in the appropriate box. I finish it, fill in the word verification, check my identity under either my WordPress or Google accounts and press “Post.” After a very slight pause, Blogger tells me it can’t fulfil my requested action, leaving my thoughts stranded in blogging infinity with no return home. Pressing the back button returns me to a blank comment box, where I have to start all over again.
Apart from the waste of time and effort involved, this is … (insert expletive of choice, like “rather” or “really”) annoying, and several conversations have now missed my undoubtedly elegant and useful contributions 😉
Any suggestions, other than composing comments in Word and then cutting and pasting? Or am I missing something?
