Darn intermittent comment problem

Anyone would think this was recently made by Toyota or something.  Because google is such a behemoth (it is they who power the blogger platform) there is no-one you can email directly, but there is a forum which googlefolk also monitor, and I can see they've answered a few questions here and there.  I can see no question posted about this problem per se, but there are some commenty glitches reported lately.  I hope it is just something stupid I have done.

I know many of you have emailed me wanting to post comments, and for the fact that you can't, I am sorry.  I would suggest that those of you who don't have my email maybe, um, leave a comment! lol

For what it's worth, I have had some of the same experiences you have been reporting.  But they have not recurred every time.  So far I have been able to Geek 101 around them (close it and open it again), but this is clearly an unacceptable thing.  Should we not resolve it soon I'll look into a third-party commenty widget.  Now that I have discovered there are such things.

And I shall post with the news.



  1. So of course, now I'm testing it. again.

  2. I'll test it, first my comment shows up and then ... it's like the computer has changed its mind and the message is no longer. I'll try under anon.

  3. aha! It's worked!
