Problems With Posting Comments To Blogs, With Embedded Comments Form Used

This week, we are seeing more reports of people who can't post comments on blogs which have the Inline ("Embedded below post") comments form. Unlike a previous problem which involved CAPTCHA ("word verification") screening, the CAPTCHA form seems fine here.

People who are not members of a blog, when preparing to comment, are allowed to select how they wish to authenticate, and be identified, subject to the options selected by the blog owner.
  • Anonymously.
  • Using a pseudonym / URL.
  • Using An OpenID.
  • Using a Google id.
For some people, this pulldown list is empty.

This appears to be yet another problem with a blocked script. One successfully diagnosed problem involved a Kaspersky product. The solution, in that case, was to whitelist "www.google.com/friendconnect".
