Sidetracked…

This is a request to everyone that hosts their blog on blogger/blogspot. Apparently there is some sort of a spat between WordPress and Google. The result is that I am not able to comment on your blogs using my WordPress ID. There is a way to fix it though!

If you go to your settings page, and select the Comments sub-category, there is a line titled: Who Can Comment? It’s the second one down. *PLEASE* change this to ‘anyone’.

I know you are scared of anonymous users, but it will still require the word verification to prevent robots from spamming you. I’m pretty sure that you still get to moderate everything the way you used to. (I tried to test this, really. None of t he fake comments I stuck on my blogspot blog were sufficiently spammy. How sad is it that I can’t even write good spam?)

This will let me come back to your site and share the comment-ey love we used to have. Otherwise, I will only be able to admire you from afar.

Thank you!
