Since I will be on vacation next week, I'll pre-post this somewhat whiney blog to magically appear around Wednesday.
I understand that Blogspot is trying to reach out and get viewers and commenters from other programs but I've noticed in the last several weeks that posting a comment is not as easy as it used to be. I used to knock out my comment, choose to post as Mark, Butler and Bagman, and hit the send button. Sometimes I have to type in the silly meaningless and sometimes evocative "word" to prove that I am a living person instead of an automated piece of spam.
But now, more and more, I have to chose which identity to use -- Live ID, Google Account, AIM, URL, etc.
What is often frustrating is that my first inclination is to try and be mygoogleself. So I type in my ID and password. Sometimes nothing happens. Sometimes I lose my original comment. And sometimes, instead of appearing as my-google-self my comment starts off with "Anonymous said" -- how will they know it is me?
Sometimes, after trying two or three times to post a comment, I just give up.
Whine whine whine.
