1. Has anyone else been getting a persistent error on all Blogger hosted/platformed blogs wherin opening the comment box gets you nothing but the error message?

2. What the hell, it worked last time, raids running on time make me shameless. Looking for a healer and one or two more DPS. Resto druid or holy pally would be completely ideal, as would hunter or boomkin for DPS, but anything is good outside another rogue/kitty. Raids run 8:45-11:00 server time. Apply within. (There is no actual application as we’re still trying to figure out how to edit the damn thing. Tag an officer.)

3. I knew Rob Liefeld had his laughably bad moments, but I had never fully digested HOW bad until this. Set aside a bit of time as each panel/cover takes a few to fully drink in all the things that are wrong with them. Often my first reaction was something completely other than the author covered, and I found the same was true of friends as I shared them around. Drink it in, folks; the most celebrated comics artist of the nineties, and he can’t cope with anatomy, perspective, hands gripping things, feet, women between the knees and head, or depth. At all.

Sam Keith was so much, much, very much better. Why isn’t HE a fraction as famous?

    “Has anyone else been getting a persistent error … ?”

    I misread this as ‘president error’. Yeah, been getting those… well shit, as long as I can remember.

    Yes, I have been getting those errors.

    Logging out of gmail and back in got me to be able to see the comments, at least, but it “reset” to the error state when I tried to post one.

    So I’ve been using the “name/url” option to talk to Tam and Bobbi and Peter.

    I ALWAYS use name/url and I’m getting the same error; even clicking on the comments gives me the “OH NO IT IS BROKEN”.

    Also: The Rob Liefield page made me laugh so hard my wife had to come check on me to see if I was all right.

    Hunh. Well, crap. I was definitely getting an error “There has been an error blsdjh-asd993473bv. Please search the help forum for blsdjh-asd993473bv to see if anyone else is having the same problem” for, oh, all day yesterday, and much of this morning until I kicked gmail.

    But I don’t know what else to suggest if that doesn’t fix it.

    Ok, just tried it again to verify.

    Logged out of gmail.

    Clicked on the comment link on Tam’s post about Kim Jimmy Jong and the Norks. Got the comment pop-up window. Typed out a comment.

    Filled in the captcha. Left it on “use your google account”

    Clicked, got a page that said “You need to log in.”

    Provided credentials.

    Got the error page. “bX-gm90ik” is my error code this go ’round. Closed the window.

    Checked gmail. The log in token was successful.

    Clicked the comment link. Got the error page. Closed the window.

    Logged out of gmail again. Clicked the link. Got the comment window.

    Left my comment. Filled the captcha. Selected Name/Url radio button. Hit submit. Comment goes through.

    1. I’m occasionally getting an “enable cookies/login” message when I open a comment window, but when I close it and retry, it’s fine.

  8. Heather Says:

    I’m getting a malicious website warning from Norton for the Rob Liefeld link, any chance you could check it? I’ve been getting weird random blogger errors as well, but no suggestions for fixing it :(

  9. Ruth Says:

    Just occasional enable cookie errors here
