Open Letter to Blogger

Here is a simple, step-by-step description of the past two days.
1. log into blogger.
2. go to dashboard.
3. select "create"
4. begin writing post.
5. publish post
6. message appears "the blog you are searching for does not exist."
6.5. Open new window; ascertain that blog does in fact still exist.
7. go back to blogger, and click back arrow.
8. begin swearing because all my hard work has been erased.

Please fix whatever is causing this. Losing entries sucks. i going to post this problem on my blog today (if blogger lets me) so everyone else will know about this too.
So folks, pardon me if my Boycott Target never appeared. Blogger lost it, because Blogger has a glitch.

Oh and my piece on homebrewing? Also lost, because blogger can't seem to find it's own blogs.

It's really not cool that I have to copy and paste every entry into a word file just in case blogger forgets where its own ass is.

if you click the "recover post" button right after you hit the back button, you can usually rescue most posts.

also, you might want to get into the habit of pasting the text of your post into a word processor document before you hit the publish button

we're up to day three of "The blog you were looking for was not found."

I am totally losing my temper over this. I have three posts ready to go, all copied to the word processor and I just keep getting the smae message: The blog you were looking for was not found. The blog you were looking for was not found. The blog you were looking for was not found. The blog you were looking for was not found.

Is anyone else havign this problem or is it just me?

This is f-ed up.
"Day 3" posted OK, as did a "day three" addednum.

But this will not publish:

I'm a regular visitor to daily Kos, but lately I have been dropping by the conservative Red State as well.

Both have a large audience and many many posters, so many posters that you find yourself filtering which ones are useful and which are just bloviating.

There are some great pieces at both sites occasionally. Kos of course has a great voice and writes well. People at dailykos like Pastordan are OK, Bonddad is good. I love Cindy Sheehan's pieces. At Red State, which i haven't been visiting as long, there's some good stuff by Mike Krempasky, who's not associated with the site so much anymore. I'm sure there are others, but as I say, i'm not as familiar with Red State as I am with kos.

I do know one thing for sure however: both sites are loaded with hysterical bloviaters.

here's one from Red State; you don't have to read it all.

And what to my wondering eyes did appear? In the next paragraph, the Times reports that Senator Lindsey Graham of SC, where I currently reside and where I voted for Graham in the last election, has "negotiated a compromise" on his bill restricting access to US courts by Guantanamo detainees. A compromise? May I ask why the GOP still feels the need to seek a compromise? Especially on the heels of the new rhetoric, so long in coming, from the White House? And just what is this "compromise" to the stance I had only recently applauded Sen. Graham for taking? I'm sorry I asked
...and so on.

Here's one from kos:
I see that Bush has declared war - again. This time he's declared war on those who question his reasons for his first declaration of war - against Iraq. So Bush has moved on - again. No talk about the WMD's , the insurgents, Osma bin Laden anymore. We're on to a new target. That would be those who disagree with any decisions he made in that other war.
Is it just me or have we moved into Alice in Wonderlandville? And, of cousrse, the neocons have gotten themselves first class tickets to this new war and even have their cheerleaders all picked out. The National Review Warriors - nice twist on the name don't you think? Then there's the Rush Rovers - guess who on that team?
I would shake my head at the insanity, but it's been spun clean off over the last 5 years.

Not to put a damper on someone's political advocacy, but it gets to the point where all you want to say is SHUT. THE. FUCK. UP.
Great. You have an opinion. Yup, you sure are outraged. Yup, that's some pretty great outrage you have there. May I interest you and the dorkus from Red State in a steel cage match?

Gah. Off to drinking liberally...

Isn't that weird?
