Blog Comment Window In The Wrong Language

Earlier this month, we had a problem with the Archives menu in the sidebar showing up in the wrong language. My Beta version of this blog had that for a day or so. Now, we have people reporting
Some of the people that wanted to comment on my page have their comment pages in Thai. I do live in Thailand but my blog is all in English and I do get the comment page in English.


Remedies suggested in Make Your Blog Speak Your Language are relevant to the blog body, but not the comments page.

>> (Update 5/25): Blogger states that the comments page language is determined by the blog readers language setting, or location.
If they are a Blogger user, Blogger will try to use their account settings for your comment page. If they're not a Blogger user, then Blogger will try to detect language settings from their browser.

Stats Components Are Significant, In Their Own Context

One popular Stats related accessory, which displays pageview information to the public, is the "Popular Posts" gadget.

Popular Posts identifies from 1 to 10 of the most popular posts in the blog, by comparing Stats pageview counts. Optional parts of the display of each post are a snippet of text, and an ever popular thumbnail photo.

Like many Stats features, blog owners have found imaginative uses for "Popular Posts" - and overlook the limitations of the gadget. Both the dynamic nature of Stats, and the timing of the various pageview count recalculations, create confusion, when Popular Posts is examined.
