Apparently Blogger has decided I don't need no stinkin' comments. I'm not sure why, as I haven't changed ANYTHING in regard to comments, template or settings.
I did visit the Blogger Help page and apparently the random disallowance of comments is fairly wide-spread. It happened to SwampWitch recently, I know...
One of the possibilities is that this was one of the rare occasions that I saved my draft before publishing. I've also noticed that there's a little bubble at the bottom when I create a post saying that Blogger saves my drafts automatically. I wonder if this is part of the problem.
The Blogger people are looking into it and if you've had a problem with this too, you probably ought to chime in on the Help page too!
Sorry - I was looking forward to reading your comments about "W"'s wild ride in my last post.
