there have been a rash of missing comments lately….
what’s happened to the comments? I don’t know, do you?
Are yours missing?
You see in the last couple months I’ve left comments here and there, hither and yon, up and down the blogosphere…
The comments have been for oh so many of you… but all the ones that seem to have gone missing are on blogger sites…
Compound that with the fact that a few of you have so gently informed me… you’ve left comments for me that haven’t shown up…
I don’t always have time to comment and then an hour later, day later, week later whatever go back to check a post I already read and commented on… so largely the comments I think I leave but didn’t *actually* leave go unnoticed by me…
But today I did. I checked a few and noticed missing comments. Comments I know were witty or snarky or cute… or even particularly lame…. but they never showed…
What I guess I’m getting to is this… Does blogger just hate me or are you all affected by this tom foolery too?

I have had some problems leaving comments for others but I don’t think anyone has a problem leaving them for me. So it isn’t just you.
All of my smart ass comments seem to show up (I’m sure some in the blogosphere wish they would not).With The Woman sick I need something to do.-Stu
i find that if i leave a particularly enlightening and/ or witty comment it is gone. almost as if blogger calculates the value of it and uses that as an index as to how quickly it disappears into the ether. take for example this comment. suckville. but the one i left before it was so replete with humour as to be almost unreadable by those with weak stomachs. and yet this one remains. shocking.
One of the reasons I left BLogger actually.
Well that just explains so, so much. Here I thought I was losing my mind.
Blogger has done it to me too. Or it just tells me I can’t leave any at all. Bad blogger.
I don’t know if you can *hear* me, but I’m having strange blogger experiences too – comments disappearing, spacing all wonky unless I go into html to fix it.And spell check was dead for weeks…Do we revolt? (Now I know this comment is going to disappear…)
I know my spell check is still dead, but I don’t have the energy to go back and see if my fantastic comments are sticking around.I get your witty notes and it pleases me. As does the phrase ‘tom foolery.’ :)
I know I’ve left comments here and they haven’t shown up, but I don’t think it’s happening on my site, but I guess I don’t really know. I never use spell check so that doesn’t bother me at all.
sybil: oh sweetie it HAS happened on your site… that’s one of the first places I noticed it happening. Specifically mine, yours, Holls’, The Holmes and Lisa (fairytales lisa) back before she switched over…Flutter: I know… stealing away the little bits of brilliance I leave strewn about the interwebs… and that others I’m sure do too… some of my best work disappears. Really. stephanie: Tom Foolery is underused in this day and age… My spell check was out for quite some time… luckily I use firefox with lovely built in spell check.lisa: I’ve considered it. Last year out of curiosity I set up an account at “the other place” where so many of our fellows.jo: no one should ever do that to you Jo…kimberly: at first I totally thought I was too.lilac: you go!!holly: I KNOW. Great comment… gone in a flash… total crap, preserved til the end of time. Though that comment was just fine honey, and very functional.Stu: The interwebs can always use your smart ass comments…jenera: I thought no one was have problems leaving them for me until one day when sybil had a hissy fit. ..
I have noticed it more lately, as well. If we are planning to revolt, I am in.
Holy crap, I thought it was me and I was just totally crazy…. I KNOW I have left comments, and I go back and gone, all for revolt.And spell check hasn’t worked in over a month now, mine still doesn’t.
hhmmm… i’ve noticed one or two comments disappear after i’m pretty damn sure i left one… i thought it was just me!
I’m sorry to be the one to tell you, but Blogger anathematizes you. It wants you and all of your chaos gone. I’ve been trying to convince it otherwise, but it won’t listen to me. It’s very temperamental…
come over to the dark side- WP want you!! I had sooo many issues with blogger that I finally just moved. I’m now experiencing issues with blogger loading soooo slowly that I can’t visit most blogger blogs- sucks big time.not to mention you can set it so that the first time someone comments you have to approve it after that they’re good to go- doing word verification AND signing into my gmail account gets on my nerves. eeer sorry if it’s a bit off topic!
I really had not noticed but since you mention it, I did not see any comment you may have left about being “book tagged”
Okay – I am so pissed. I forgot you have said that before.We need to boycott blogger!Or something.
I havent noticed replies missing but lately when I click on links in the comments to reply to someone directly at their blog, I get an error message .. but error messages on Google are always happening ..
Disappearing comments happening to me too. I know I need to move to WP, but, dag, when?
