LOSING COMMENTS AT LOG-IN

  1. WHY WHY WHY is it that when I try to post a comment to a WP blog and have forgotten to sign in, after I sign in the comment is lost - unless I remember to copy to my clipboard. This is a SERIOUSLY STUPID setup. I assume you will tell me it has to do with the internet in general somehow, since it happens on other platforms as well. It does seem that someone as big as WP could create a work-around . . . perhaps even just a KINDLY NOTICE on the "You are not logged in page" that says **HEADS**UP** If you have written a comment COPY & SAVE BEFORE LOGGING IN . . . .

  2. I always copy the comment so I have it on my clipboard before I click any submit button on any blog regardless of where it's hosted.

    There's more here as well:

    There is quite a bit of speculation here, and while I can't address every single point, I'd like to point out that one of the many reasons behind this change was to provide greater control over your own identity within comments at WordPress.com.

    Anyone who knows your email address could have easily linked their comment to your account in a way that was indistinguishable from you leaving it, and you would have no way of knowing it or stopping them. Now comments linked to your account are always going to be from you. ... read more > http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/you-must-be-logged-in-to-comment/page/11?replies=327#post-852388

  3. Yes, i usually copy also, but seems like there could be a way to program a carry-over to WP servers after the login - especially since the comment is typed on to a WP blog. Perhaps I am asking the technologically impossible, but then I am such a "believer" in tech and all the geeks that create it;-D BTW I do appreciate the steps built in to protect comment hijacking, so to speak.

  4. I've was caught a couple of times when I forgot to copy the comment to my clipboard before clicking submit but now I'm doing that automatically.
