Publishing Comments

Why don't the little "publish comment" buttons all work the same?!!!  I suppose it has to do with the system you blog with.  I've no clue really because I've no clue about this techy stuff.  I'm just guessing.  Does any one really know why this is?

The orange "Publish Your Comment" buttons work the first time, every time for me.

The white "Publish" buttons that turn blue when you click on them hardly ever work for me.  Once I tried off and on for two hours to publish a comment on one of these before finally giving up.  I've sent many bloggers a private message just so they would know I was there, and I liked what they did. 

It's so incredibly frustrating and I know you want me to come back later and try again, but that's getting even more time consuming.  Please know that I'm watching you work.  I will continue to write a comment, but if it won't take after a few minutes of trying, I need to move along in life.

Remember...I'm watching you work!  Why wouldn't I?  You're very inspiring!  I just don't always get to tell you so.

I leave comments because I like to get comments. It makes me sad when the stupid button doesn't work right...but you're right,sometimes it is easier to just move on.

I try once and if it gets too complicated, I give up. Comments do nudge us along, though, so they should make it easier!

I do love your rants. When I make a comment that is any length I do a highlight all then right click copy before I try to publish it, then when it say nyah nyah I can try again and just paste it in. We all love comments (I do anyway) so it is a pity not to be able to comment. Can I put in a word for flickr which always seems to work first time and easily. Here we go - highlight all,right click, copy.

I wish more blogs would turn off their comment verification - since all the changes that were made March 1st it has become very frustrating to try and leave a comment anywhere. I changed my mine and declared my blog a "word free verification blog." I have not been plagued with spam. I just hate to jump through hoops in order to leave a comment so thought others would also.

I hope mine is not one that is giving you fits. LOL I took word verification off mine, too, just because I love, love to get comments and I don't want people to get frustrated. I know it bugs me to do the two wonky words, and sometimes I just don't get it right and have to start all over again. Meh.
I have a full time job to handle along with my bloggie stuff, so short and sweet and simple is the best! No word verify, and just a click to comment! Heehee!
