Blogger Pissed Me Off

While I was happily enjoying the dulcet tones of Mr. Billy Idol, I was wooed by Blogger to switch over to the NEW IMPROVED BETA VERSION!!! Blogger promised me it was the best thing since the self-flushing toilet and that by making the change my life would improve in untold ways. What could be better.

So I switched. And then I found out that it was fraught with a number of "known issues" (not to mention all the unkown ones) not the least of which is that only other Beta users could leave comments.


This was KNOWN and still Blogger suckered people into switching leaving them not knowing the known unknowns until you decide to make them known. Known knowns, unknown known, known unknowns...Enough of this Donald Rumsefled crap! The whole point of blogger is to develop imaginary friends and allow them to leave pithy comments on the inane things you have to say. How can this happen if one of the known issues is the inability to leave comments.

I got so damn mad I didn't speak to blogger for several weeks. I'm still a bit surly but I'm slowly getting over it.

LOL - don't worry - you'll live...though your life will be less fullfilling without comments from your readers ;D.

I'm teasing.

Happy New Year!

It looks like there are ways to leave comments. I'll try several of them. Thanks for the heads up, though. We almost moved The Churck.

Hey Sven, still me under a different name. What is so great about that new-fangled indoor outhouse?

Anonymous said...

Anonymous works as well. What's the gripe?

Sven said...

I guess while I was pouting Blogger fixed the problem. It still pissed me off though.

As for the outhouse, now I can leave my mitts on.

beta = blogger equals total a**holes?

Better to be pissed off than pissed on?

I'm still not "allowed" to switch, and I'm starting to think that's a good thing! LOL

So now you can't switch back, right? Is there anything good about Beta?
