How handy; today I’ve noticed that if I don’t use my Blogger/Google password, I can’t sign into a Blogger user’s comments as “Other”, but only as “Nickname”…which means, the sign-in screen doesn’t ask me for my website, so my name doesn’t link back to my blog.
Which is functionally the exact same thing as signing in as “Anonymous”.
That’s a bit too bad. Not that it makes a big difference for me (oh, except for the egoistic thought that now someone fascinated by MY BRILLIANT COMMENT! won’t be able to find where I live to imbibe more of my glorious wisdom), but occasionally I have been known to want to trace back someone’s comment that I read somewhere, to their own blog. And now it appears those days are over.
So that’s a little inconvenient.
“We’ve decreased our product’s versatility, in our continuing quest to serve you better”, is what it amounts to I suppose. I don’t know why I’m even surprised anymore.
