Listen up all you blogger users, I have a complaint to make. Not all of you are guilty of this grievous offense, but enough of you have cropped up recently to spur this post.
There appear to be many options when choosing who can and can’t comment on your posts. Most of you allow anyone, and you simply choose between anonymous, blogger, open ID & name and URL. SOME of you however, only allow open ID or blogger. Doesn’t seem like a big deal, I know, but SOME of us have gone through all the trouble of getting our own domain names and now we can’t comment on your blogs.
My little sneaky trick has been to simply put in my wordpress address, whose current post is now a link to my new blog, but really, must we do this trickery? Why won’t you let us own domain people comment on your blog? Don’t hate me because my domain is ten characters shorter. Let me speak my mind with my ACTUAL blog site. Don’t make me pretend I’m still a wordpress.com-er. I’m not. I like my new blog, and I’d rather you go there when reading my comments.
Can’t we all just get along?
If my blog’s commenting section isn’t amiable enough for any of you, please let me know and I’ll make dh look into it. 🙂

@ Jenni : Nope, yours is another perfect one – you get an A+ also 🙂
Is mine disagreeable for you? I tried to open it up to everyone!
I totally know hwat you mean! I had the same problem until I finally went and got a gmail account. Now I can sign in using my google name and my comments come in as Andrea McMann. When someone clicks on my comment, it doesn’t take them directly to my blog, but to my Google profile, which has a button that says Homepage. YOu have to click that to get to my blog. A hassle, I know. I much prefer when people have Name/URL. What are they afraid of that they leave their settings as Google or open ID? Pain in the patootey (One of my kids’ favorite words!)!!
@ Sues2u2: Nope, yours is perfect, I just checked to make sure – class, everybody look at Sues blog, and then do exactly what she did! 😛
You don’t have a problem w/ mine do you? I think all I have is comment moderation enabled because of the Indian herb store that keeps trying to get me to make my daughter a guinea pig. (wow, talk about a sentence! breathe, pant, gasp!)
