Some time back, I recall a fellow blogger friend who one of the first few to convert to beta mention that she couldn't log into her account to post comments into non-beta blogger's pages.
Now, I find myself facing the same problem... only it's the other way round. Due to my unexplainable stubborness in refusing to change to Beta, me and my blog have been relegated to the status of second class blognetizens. Bloody hell...
I can't post comments on my beta blogger friends blogs in one try. It takes at least 3 attempts, and that is if I label myself as 'other' or 'anonymous'. Sometimes, I give up due to sheer frustration in attempting to leave a sign that I have visited.
Other non-beta bloggerfriends have mentioned similar thoughts on this subject: Prometheus and Yaxlich.
I'm afraid, that blogger has finally figured out a tactic to not woo non-beta bloggers but to coerce them into joining this society where if things go wrong, then too bad! Ha! Ha! And then when there a minuscle number of non-beta bloggers left, they will just eliminate the whole non-beta thing and then one day when we wake up andfeel the urge to post something on our blogs we will be cruelly informed that due to the poor response non-beta blogger is having, they have decided to scrap the idea of having beta and non-beta versions!
See, they have a secret agenda.
