I know I went away for a few days that turned into ten with very busy and fun times. It gave me little time to read or comment on my usual list of blogs.
By the time I reached home last Sunday a flu bug had entered my body and I slept and swam for four days with added sound effects of sneezing and coughing. Wakeful moments were spent replenishing fluids.
I did read the odd blogpost, but discovered a problem when I tried to add a comment.
A few weeks ago I was complaining about captchas on Blogger blogs, now the trouble is with WordPress.
The troublesome blogs all feature three little icons in a row under the comment box and before the boxes for personal details. To me, they are a ruddy nuisance recent phenomena and seem to be on updated blog faces.
The three icons are
I am doubly annoyed (very easy at the moment since I am still recovering and very much under par) because the blogs I visited have been regulars for quite some time. So regular in fact, that my information is already printed correctly in the required spaces, clicking the ‘Post comment’ button does nothing other than cause frustration. Nothing moves.
Clicking on the WordPress icon (even when I go through the rig-ma-roll) a box appears asking me to log in to comment.
My email address appears not once but TWICE! I am told it belongs to an account I am not currently logged into. HUH?
I am logged in through my regular browser and my email is busy with incoming and outgoing mails.
I have no wish to be forced to log in using either Twitter or the dreaded facebook.
So if I have not been to visit and comment, it does not mean I have forgotten you. Give me a few more days to gain more energy and hopefully sort out the commenting problem.
