Additional change to comments...

Sigh - No, this won't keep Claire and Gooch out of the Spam Locker, but...

Some people like to follow comments that turn into discussion threads, or see if anybody responds to their comments. They do this by "subscribing" to the thread. Except one of the long list of things wrong with the new Blogger "improvements" to the comment feature is that you can't do that anymore. Because that would be helpful and friendly.

Well, it turns out there is a setting that still allows subscription, and I've reset the comments to allow it. But it does mean we no longer get the pop-up box, which as a reader of others' blogs I've always preferred.

Tell me if the new format is too obnoxious.

UPDATE: Well. That was...obnoxious.

Received an email indicating that a reader couldn't comment at all. Which would explain the complete lack of comments.

Switched back to the old thing.

I hate blogger now. Before it merely annoyed me.

I think it's the "new" interface. Folks who still have the old one I can still subscribe to comments. Yes, Blogger sucks donkey balls, that's why I switched to Wordpress last year. I love it there, even if my hit count dropped precipitously (Google is a sore loser).
