PWHM - edition 4

Welcome to another edition of People Who Hate Me.  Today, it's really more of a thing or maybe I can go with the people behind the thing?  Do you think that's allowed?  Are the rules of PWHM that strict?  Anyways, the people who hate me today are the creators of Blogger's commenting system.

For several months, I've had trouble leaving comments at blogs hosted by Blogger.  I type my comment, press enter and then Blogger tells me that it can't publish my comment.  Then, I press enter again and a word verification comes up.  Then, I enter that and finally, FINALLY, the comment gets published.

This is utter BS and I call SHENANIGANS on the people of Blogger.  Does anybody else have this problem?  Is it just me?

Happy Delurking Week!  If Blogger ain't fouling you up with the whole comment-leaving thing, take a sec to say hi!

Oh, it does that to me a lot too. I think it happens when I've had the window open more than a few minutes (like I want to think about my comment and come back to it in a bit) and someone else has commented since I opened the window. It's like it needs to reload with new information.

Ugh. That's been happening to me for MONTHS. Vomit. Now let me go press 'publish your comment' eight times so you can read this.

DUDE. I really hope a rep from Blogger reads that.

That shit makes me CRAZY. Thank you for posting about it.

I have the same problem, but I have found out that on some bloggs I need to click preview first, and on others straight to publish, not sure why this bug hasn´t been fixed, maybe they don´t know of it.

I have kinda sorta had this problem. I have had a number of comments I *know* I left not show up on people's blogs on subsequent visits. But I'm not exactly sure of the HOW behind my missing comments...

I type too quickly and sometimes I end up typing the comment before the comment box has logged me in as Dr Spouse. So I have to retype it.

I've had the same problem for the last few months, too!

I really hate it when I've written a long, well thought out comment, just to press publish, and *poof* it's gone!

Leah said...

Yes! Yes! I've been posting dozens and dozens of comments on all of my friends blogs for months now and -- shockingly -- none of them are showing up!

Wait, that's a lie. I'm not commenting because I'm a lazy, lying piece of shit. Right.

But I'm going to go ahead and blame Blogger. Damn you, Blogger!

In the meantime, you already know I read your blog faithfully. No need to delurk, but taking the opportunity to say hi anyway. xo

I have the same thing happen on some blogs...I notice it's mostly the ones that have the drop-down menu for login. I NEVER can comment on those blogs.

Yes, I have this problem frequently. I'm surprised to see that so many Blogger bloggers (heh) have had the problem as well.

Hi!

The separate pop-up or page comment forms like me fine, but the embedded on a page ones usually hiss at me a bit before I can comment. Annoying beasts.
