So it seems Blogger is making some changes again. Sigh
I have kind of been of the opinion,"if its not broke , don't fix it"
A while back several folk were having trouble commenting on blogs that did not have a pop up window
and others (myself included ) found the only option was to update to Chrome in order to read and or comment . Now the word verification has changes and is a royal pain in the arse!
Several bloggers have declined to comment on blogs that have that as a requirement . I get that it helps prevent spam, but I think it did before the changes so not sure what the difference is .I have chosen not to use it, and I find that the spam , get forwarded to the spam folder quite quickly after it is reported once. That said occasionally regular comments are wrongly sent there so I check it now and then to make sure to keep the good stuff
Now the comment form has changed. I usually "subscribe by email" to the blogs I comment on , often I am not at my desk , and I get email on my phone so when I have a few minutes down time I can quickly check in to see whats going on,if I have asked a question or been asked I know to follow it up. the new comment form has no option for this so now I would have to go back to each and see . Also those blogs that moderate comments , are fine, but a dear friend of mine is ill and one of the ways I kind of "check in " is to see if she has posted new comments . again, with the new form can't do it .
Oh well, I am sure it is a part of an improvement plan, but I really would love it if they stopped "fixing " it
Anyway I will leave you with a picture of my "golden boys" Soaking up a little sun
Stay safe and warm
