Many of you are kind enough to visit my blog and leave a comment. Naturally, I visit back and look forward to reciprocating. Yet more often than not, my comments are not accepted because my Open ID credentials cannot be verified, and it’s been driving me crazy! I looked into this maddening problem, and the always helpful Happiness Engineers ( don’t you love the name!) at WordPress explained what’s causing it. Just to clarify, this is strictly a problem with commenting on Blogger blogs.
Turns out it’s been going on for years, and it’s a Blogspot software issue. One way around this, aside from Blogspot fixing things, is if bloggers enable commenters to post with a username and URL. Another way is for WordPress bloggers to open a Google account and comment through that account. So for all those who think we WordPress bloggers are just plain rude, it’s not our fault! Maybe it’s time we all put some pressure on Blogspot to fix things, nudge, nudge, hint, hint 😉
