It’s complaint time, at least for me.
First of all, why is it that some blogs still retain the ‘subscribe by email’ button when others have had it removed? I really miss this facility. Are there too many emails flying around ... is that the problem?
A blogging friend uses his blog to encourage participation from followers, which was great fun, but now the subscription service has (mostly) gone it means we must visit repeatedly on the off-chance there will be more dialogue to read and respond to. How do you feel about losing the provision of subscribe by email?
Seems to me the new system is doing its best to isolate us from friends. It’s like losing out on conversations, he said, I said, and then he replied, and ... so on. I wonder if it’s just me that feels this way?
All this on top of the other old chestnut, word verification, is driving me nuts.
Most are complaining about the new style captcha and a lot of us have vetoed it, but those that haven’t might be wondering why their followers are not answering back. Is it worth even responding to comments since they quite possibly won’t be seen?
Since writing the above I have discovered that the new Blogger template caters for 'subscribe by email' as noticed on my WI blog. It's these old templates that have been updated - or should I say downgraded. Bah!
