Bloggers Posting Comments To Their Own Blogs See "Your request could not be completed."

Of about half the comments that folks provide to this blog, the contents of the comment being posted warrants an immediate response from me. So I'm quite used to the procedure of comment moderation - having selected the Publish link in my email, then opened the specific post, and composed a response on the fly. And for the past week or so, several times / day, I will see
Your request could not be completed.
upon hitting the "Post Comment" button. Retrying the "Post Comment" button generally gets the comment posted, though it's still annoying.

The text "Your request could not be completed." is a well known phrase, some time ago (though to have been) replaced by the endless series of bX- code errors. This month, it looks like the well known monolithic error is back again.

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.

Help! I Can't See My Blog!

I just posted to my blog, so I know that it's there. I can tell others are looking at it. But I can't see it.

Well, the good news is you don't have a blog hijack or other calamity. Your blog is not gone.

Apparently, some ISPs are blocking *.blogspot.com, or maybe have network configuration or infrastructure problems. You can access Blogger.com or you can access Blogspot.com, but you can't access nitecruzr.blogspot.com, or bloggerstatusforreal.blogspot.com.

You can't access them directly, that is. If you can access any free, anonymous proxy servers, though, you may be able to access your blog.

Note: You can use PKBlogs with the URL pre packaged. Here is the address of this post (with gratuitous line breaks to prevent the old post sidebar alignment problem):
