I'm having trouble commenting on other sites

Hello everyone, this is a cry for help. Everytime I go to post a thoughtful, erudite or mostly lame comment on someone elses blog it ends up being:

a) re-directed
or
b)it just vanishes!

I'm starting to feel very left out of the conversation!
Can some tekky person please explain!

maybe try signing out and then signing back in again....

I'm no tech head but when I was having problems I finally made the switch from Internet Explorer to Google Chrome and I haven't had a problem since and everything is so much faster.

Hi Steve,

I was too, blogger was being a complete pain in the...
But luckily I've switched to a mac and no longer have any issues with commenting.

That's probably not going to help, unless you're planning on changing computers though!

Yes, I was going to say also that I had a similar problem with commenting on blogger sites using Internet Explorer - the comment just disappeared. I've switched to Firefox and all is well again :)

I have had problems too, especially on Hazel's blog. Twice I have gone on there, written a hugely insightful, intelligent comment only to loose it somewhere in the ether!
....and btw, thanks for a lovely lunch today at RVL. Had the Lamb, and then Orange Cake. Both divine!

Hi Steve this message below is from "known issues" at blogger buzz on the dashboard.

We're investigating reports of users not being able to comment on IE8/9 from the embedded form. We hope to have a fix out shortly, but in the meantime we encourage admins to switch to either the full-page or pop-up forms which should be working without issue.

Thanks for your patience, and we'll make sure to update this post as soon as we have more info.

Me too...I'm new to blogging and thought I must be doing something wrong or the fact that i'm technically challenged was defeating me yet again. Reassured to hear others have experienced the same but hoping it can be sorted soon.

I have enjoyed your posts immensely Steve, thanks for the great read.
