Not too readable, and you have to search a bit to find the "Publish this comment" and "Reject this comment" links. The links are there, though it would be fairly easy to click one when aiming for the other.

I hope that this gets fixed soon.

Good to know I'm not alone. This problem has been plaguing me for about 24 hours and still no "official" comment on the "official" blogger status.

And even better to know I'm not alone either. This exact thing is happening to me as well. I'm ecstatic to learn it's not just me and that I'm not going insane. I do hope someone can e-mail me if they find out more about this problem. It's Clive four four four at mac dot com. And yes, those fours are really numbers.

Misery loves company.

The comments left on my blogs and forwarded to my Gmail are in MIME format, too. Very messy and time consuming to read. It's been happening for over a week now.

What Is "" vs. ""?

With Google Domains registered custom domains becoming more normal, we are seeing one odd attention to detail, expressed as confusion in Blogger Help Forum: Learn More About Blogger.My website uses "" - am I supposed to use "", instead?It's good to be attentive to detail, particularly with custom domain publishing. This is one detail that may not require immediate attention, however.
