Blogger users unhappy in
2004 2005 20062007
In another case of all that is old is new again, users of Google’s Blogger service are unhappy (again), complaining that the service has suffered from repeated outages, feature malfunctions and data loss.
Computerworld reports that the problems are “particularly frustrating” to bloggers who recently migrated to the latest version of blogging on the expectation that the new platform would be more reliable than the old platform, which had a history of…. repeated outages, feature malfunctions and data loss.
Blogger users reported problems including*
- Mysterious gremlins with faces like Marissa Myer and Matt Cutts eating blog entries,
- Being bared from posting comments because unlike most other users of the service, they didn’t have 100 spam blogs hosted there
- wonky RSS because all of a sudden 5000 other Blogger users stopped reposting their content
- Little or no response from Google to support requests, with some users still waiting for responses dating back to 2004
Are you a non spam blogging Blogger user suffering problems with the service, let us know, I’m sure we can find someone to fix the problem for you…with WordPress :-)
*Yes, I’ve taken the liberty of juicing the story up a little bit, after all, who wants to read the exact same story that has been covered extensively every year, and just about every single month since Google bought Blogger. Nothing changes, but I would like to see a Matt Cutts gremlin :-)
