Blogger comment software has been hiccupping and misbehaving lately. Some comments have been Auto-Detained by the software -- not by me -- and there they sit, belonely, until I notice and release them, a process which can take me much longer than it ought to. I tend not to see them for a ridiculous length of time (I get no notice, for example, that posts are being Detained, all I get is notice that they have been posted.) Other strange things have happened, including some kind of Auto-Edit by which whole paragraphs of comments are excised prior to -- or in some cases, after -- posting.
Be aware this is happening. It is not a deliberate -- or even controllable -- choice on my part, and there appears to be nothing I can do about it so long as comments are run through Blogger's software.
I'm becoming more and more annoyed with this situation, as I'm sure commenters are too. If someone has an alternative comment provider in mind, I'm interested in learning details....
