I’m reminded again of why I’ve always refused to use Blogger as a public writing platform. Apparently, the whole system is once more puking its guts out all over the web. Services were down for a while a little bit ago, and now the silly thing is telling me that I look like a virus or a spambot whenever I try to leave a comment on anyone’s Blogger/Blogspot site. I have a feeling that it’s yet another problem with their much vaunted Beta program.
Seems to me that Blogger users would such a lot fewer headaches and problems if they’d all simply switch over to “WordPress”:http://wordpress.com, which is a much more powerful system, anyway. I’m pretty sure that WP still has that handy-dandy import script for the original version of Blogger (last I checked, the Beta version was causing the import script a few hiccups) that’ll drag over all entries and comments. I’ve yet to see wordpress.com crash on itself or suffer a suspension of services (that aren’t scheduled).
So, all you Blogger folks out there, this is an earnest recommendation to switch over now. I know _I’m_ getting a little tired of Blogger not allowing me to interact with your sites.
