Blogger is free. I know how to use it. But ever so often.....
When I tried check my comments, there were none pending. There might not have been any comments from friends, but I know there has to have been spam because I always get tons of it.
So it's likely that if anybody wrote any comments today, they may have gotten gone when this happened.
Blogger doesn't seem to have any "outstanding issues" that would do this going on at the moment. I know they have been using their "spam blog" rule to delete peoples entire blogs without notice on a vast scale. When I was looking through the help sections of blogger, trying to figure out what happened, there were a lot of people raging because their innocuous blogs had been deleted by the spam blog program , a "spider" like thing that apparently crawls around the web searching for spam blogs and then deleting them without human intervention. I don't actually know what a "spam blog" is, but I can infer from the name it has something to do with sending out spam. Thats's a guess on my part.
At any rate, some hours later I am trying again and this seems normal enough, but I won't know til I hit the button.
It published the post. I checked the mail awaiting moderation. There was one piece of spam, and one comment from Gail. Both were date time stamped after I turned on the computer to do this post. Everything before that is gone.
