I hate the comment filters - I'm moving my blog to WordPress!or
WordPress gives you SEO tools, why are there no SEO tools for Blogger?or
I can't stand Blogger requiring that I enable third party cookies to not count my pageviews - I'm setting up a Tumblr blog!!or
How dare Blogger tell me that I can't publish my entire blog on the main page! I'm setting up my blog on my ISP's blogging service, where there no limits!!!
Features like auto pagination, and comment filtering, are not optional. Everybody has to work within the limits, to make Blogger consistently responsive and usable. And the need for third party cookies, which lets Blogger separate their common program libraries (which contain complex code, which we must trust) from our individual blogs (which we should not trust), is not understood by everybody.
Not everybody who is forced to use these features (which includes all Blogger blog owners and guests) appreciates the necessity for each. Yet we all benefit from them, jointly, when they are properly used.
There are other tools that people don't get with Blogger. Blogger encourages us to publish blogs for our readers. Google gives us Webmaster Tools, to help us control who the search engines reach, and tell about our blogs. They don't give us SEO Tools, to help us reach people who have no interest in the content of our blogs.
The Blogger Blogosphere is large, with a lot of people, of widely varied technical skill level, and benevolence of intent. Like any large family, or group of people of any nature, there will always be people who don't agree with each other, and who want to go elsewhere. Fortunately, nobody is forced to publish their blog or website, using Blogger One Button Publishing.
Anybody who does not appreciate Blogger policy is permitted to leave - just understand the possible consequences. If you move to WordPress, because of the comment filters, or the provided SEO tools, you'll have to deal with a URL change, and loss of traffic (you cannot redirect your BlogSpot URL). Plus, you'll be on a different blogging platform, which will either
- Be less visible, and of no interest to search engines and spammers.
- Be of interest to spammers, and have its own spam problems.
- Be of interest to spammers, and have an already established spam mitigation policy. You may not agree with the filters there, either - and the filters there, already trained by blog owners there, may be harder for you to deal with than the ones here.
The grass is always greener - until you get there. And once you get to the other side, you may look back and see that your decisions may have affected its colour, even as you complained about the colour.
