Eating Comment Problem

Cal texted me this. I'll remove the colorful expletives he always peppers his communication with:

Hi Terry, you XXXXXXX XXXXXXXXX. How is that XXXXXXXXXX on your XXXX. Anyway, I see some folks are having trouble with Blogger eating comments. It does happen sometimes, and I never worried about it because I'm so incredibly XXXXXXXXX self-absorbed with improving my beautiful (but mediocre) golf game.

What happens sometimes, and I've been able to duplicate it on my own, is if you simply log in to Google or Gmail, as we are wont to do, and then switch to the College Misery page (thecollegemisery.com, which I'm still XXXXXXXX paying for you miserable XXXXXXXXX ungrateful piece of XXXX moderator wannabe), you may NOT be actually logged in to BLOGGER yet.

What to do? Just make sure on the top right of the College Misery page that you see your user name. If not, select SIGN IN. It should be easy after that. I don't think this has always been the case, but I've seen it happen and I know some readers have had trouble. Being logged into Google or Gmail does not also mean you are logged in to your BLOGGER account, and that's complete XXXXXXXXXX XXXXXXXX, but that appears to be the way it is.

You also can tell if you're logged in properly when you're typing your comment. Below the comment box you should see your user name. If you don't, and if you see "COMMENT AS: GOOGLE ACCOUNT," then you are not TRULY in BLOGGER yet. Who XXXXXXXX knows why? It's probably some kind of blog privilege thing. (See what I did there?)

Anyway, Terry, the page looks like absolute DOGXXXX, so, well done!

  1. All I wanna do is marry Cal and let him take care of me and my technology needs. Mrs. Hiram can stay because she XXXXXXXXX hates golfers and I'd never share her!

  3. I'll add to this that Cal knows more about logins because, of course, he has accounts he uses for Ben, Archie, Yaro, Darla, and Cassandra. I do most of the rest.

    1. This is what I do (or Cal does when using this avatar as a sock-puppet, or whatever). My situation is slightly complicated by the fact that I access CM only in a "private browsing" window (so that my CM habit/avatar doesn't become to immediately apparent if I take this laptop to school for a workshop or whatever and somebody observes my autofills). Like Ben, I will refer the dean, or whoever, to Cal if need be.

      I've noticed this problem for some time, and it seems to be particular to CM (on some other blogger blogs, if I forget to sign in first, I can click "reply as google account," and I'm taken to the sign-in, then returned to the blog, where my comment is actually waiting for me). Must be something in the settings. Goodness knows what; I'm still trying to persuade a wordpress blog I'm currently running for another purpose to actually post scheduled posts without my signing in and viewing the post list, at which point the "shy" scheduled post suddenly makes an appearance, with no further effort on my part. Of course the problem occurs only about 10% of the time, just like all the other tech problems that disappear the moment somebody is looking.
