More Problems With Blogger

As some of you know, I've been having problems with blogger.  In particular, anything I post in the comments section at Filthie's Thunderbox tends to turn up in eastern electronic thombolia, never to be seen again.  Well, sort of never to be seen again, as both the owner of the blog, the inimitable Glen Filthie, and the owner of the comment, your humble host here at Mad Jack's Shack, both see the elusive comment echoed to our respective email addresses.  The comment itself, however, is gone.

I wrote about this before in Problems with Blogger, and found a similar topic over on The Silicon Graybeard who wrote about his tribulations in Any Fellow Bloggers Having Problems with Blogger Itself?.  I responded that I was, in fact, having problems, but no-one suggested a solution.  I tend to think that a few readers may think that I'm blogging in an impaired state, and so my observations are incredible at best.  I now have proof, in the form of a couple screen shots.

Here we see a typical erudite, cultured post by Glen.  I was inspired to write a comment, and did so.  Here's the proof. 

Thread with Comment by Yours Truly
I then clicked on the homepage for the Thunderbox, and much to my chagrin noted that my comment had vanished.

Missing Comment
This doesn't happen to all comments, and it doesn't happen all the time.  For a long while, things were working just fine.  Now this.

So if anyone has any suggestion about a way to fix this problem, or who to complain to, please sound off in the comments section.

I had a comment appear in my mailbox as if it had been posted on my blog, but it never appeared in the blog.

My problem with Blogger comments are more along the lines of, "Let's pull a random sentence out of the middle of the comment, and stick it at the end, after about 500 spacedowns. Or put it on a different comment entirely by itself."

Had a few issues with Blogger and no solutions.

Glen Filthie said...

Yup - I get them in my mailbox too but they don't appear on the blog.

NOt a clue... Sorry.

Mad Jack said...

Thanks guys. If I come up with a solution, I'll post an update.

Mad Jack:
I always like to say that Blogger has it's own "motto", if you will.

"BLOGGER: WE screw up so YOU don't have to".

Short,. sweet, and to the point, right?

Roll safe.
