Yesterday I was catching up on my blog-reading and discovered new hurdles discouraging me from leaving comments on blogs that use Blogger.com. Then after jumping all those hurdles I learned that I’m no longer allowed to leave my link so readers can find out who I am. WTF?
Naturally I assumed that something was amiss – until Doug Green explained that it’s intentional.
Sadly, I agree with Doug’s prediction that the new rules will end up ghettoizing users of Blogger.com, but is there no way to prevent that from happening? Complain like hell, or come on over to Typepad – or WordPress or Movable Type or probably any other blogging program that exists. To hell with Blogger.com.
