Mayhem in the Comment Box

Apparently my Blogger security staff have been a little over zealous of late and have been blocking people from my comment box. I don't know what Madame Defarge did to upset them, perhaps it was her entourage of huskies, I don't know, but I have had a word, redesigned my comment box and all seems to be well again.
Admittedly I have also had trouble gaining access to comment boxes... I have to flash my security pass [and sometimes my knickers] several times at Joey's and my cursor has to stay outside at Fairyhedgehog's.
And at a recent blog... I was blocked... thrown out... not allowed to enter at all... which quite frankly, hurt a bit [nobody on my blogroll... and I'm not naming names].
Anyhow, the problem seems to be with embedded comment boxes... so I have switched to a full page spread.
Other blogging news.... Mitzi has discovered my secret life as a plumber's mate; trust me, my Essex flange is far superior to the Surrey flange and I can do wonders with a two hole mixer tap whilst expanding a vent pipe... but nonetheless, these revelations are all very disturbing....

Whatever.... time for a tune for a foot tapping start to the week.



***Coming next... MJ's Tarot reading***

Yes, I've been making regular, pithy, even inspired comments but none have appeared as yet. of course, they weren't on your blog as I'm not worthy....

Scarlet Blue said...

Nota: You silly Bene!!

fairyhedgehog said...

Oh noes!

What happens when you try to comment on my blog? I need to sort it out!

Dave said...

There's nothing like a full page spread.

Of course, the staples always end up in an inconvenient place.

kyknoord said...

You mark my words, the owner of the establishement that wouldn't let you in will be sorry when their pipes get blocked.

MJ said...

*listens to lyrics of toe-tapping tune*...

I love your wobbly bits?

Oh look! My tarot reading is coming next!

Scarlet Blue said...

Fairyhedgehog: I can comment on your blog but my cursor always vanishes, I don't know why! It's slightly disorientating because I am prone to forgetting my place.

Dave: Have you seen my slow staple removing dance?

Mr Kinky: It was a serious arty blog. I should have known better. I think they mistook my well thought out comment for flippancy. It happens.

MJ: I know, it's a good line!
Ah yes... the next Tarot reading... watch this space.

fairyhedgehog said...

HOw annoying! I wonder if everyone has that happen.

Scarlet Blue said...

Fairyhedgehog: Add a note at the bottom of your next post and see if anyone mentions it.
It is odd!

fairyhedgehog said...

Good idea!

xl said...

Plumbing, MAYHEM, and MJ's tarot reading; this is shaping up to be a great week!

Ponita in Real Life said...

Plumbers can be a scarce commodity... make sure you charge accordingly!

When Mme. DeFarge had noted a comment problem, I switched to the pop-up box on my blog. It seems to be related to the embedded form.

Chairman Bill said...

Hay seems to think I have a blockage in my air admittance valve, and the back siphonage has become disconnected from the ball-cock - which is just as well.

Scarlet Blue said...

Fairyhedgehog: Take advantage! It's rare for me to have a good idea!

Mr XL: Yep, I should be dancing 'til Friday!

Ponita: Pop ups are much more reliable.
Interesting... I think I should put up my rates... nobody can work a blowbag like me.

Mr Chairman: Have you tried rinsing out your flapper valve? This should remedy it.

BEAST said...

Well what do you expect if you go round flashing your knickers at every entry portal.
Knicker flashing is strictly verboten on Beastbite , or where will it all end . You will wake up one morning with Nekkid flabby old men cavorting , wenis's on a wednesday and filth on a Friday....dear god will it ever end.
Oh!
Hello MJ.


PS,. I have never heard this track before.....see I told you

Eryl said...

I have sporadic, and rather random, comment problems, plumbing problems too come to think of it, but I've been putting it down to early onset senility.

B-u-x said...

I'm feeling terribly paranoid now Miss Scarlet, I sincerely hope it wasn't one of mine that refused you your freedom of speech.

Lovely tune, what does one have to do to be up for your yellow rubbers?

Zig said...

there are words running around your bottom!

*wonders*

does it tickle?

nick said...

I take it you used your advanced plumbing skills to unblock the comment boxes. I suspect you've been trying to flush bulky comments that just get stuck in the Yes-bend.

Scarlet Blue said...

Mr Beastie: Damn it, you've just written my next post....
Good tune though, innit? INNIT THOUGH????

Eryl: My plumbing needs an extensive overhaul... I will make no further comment on the matter...

Bux: No Sweetie, it wasn't you! It was nobody that any of us know... I was just trying to make first contact and failed miserably.

Zig: I learnt the technique from Mr Swings. He taught me everything I know. Sigh. But he seems to have vanished.

Nick: I am sending you an application form for the position of post writer at Scarlet Blue & Co... I think you're in with a good chance.

LL Cool Joe said...

Really?? I had no idea you were having problems like that? I think I set mine to have a pop up box which I thought would make things easier. As the actress said to the bishop.

You may be better off flashing your boxer shorts my way, rather than your knickers...just sayin'.

Nikos said...

My plumbing these days seems to have descended into rodding my basement tenant's drain system every so often: It's so so annoying when people chuck so much paper down the pan especially when I went to the trouble of placing a prominent sign in an ancient script

Μην πετάτε χαρτί στην τουαλέτα ή θα αφαιρέσει τις μπάλες σας

Scarlet Blue said...

Mr Cool: How about French knickers as a compromise?
I've found a disused vent into your box. All seems to be well now.

Mr Nikos: I can think of worse places to chuck the paper. Maybe the tenants need more roughage in their diets?

Αφαιρούμενη μπάλες; Τώρα υπάρχει ένα ταλέντο.

TechnoBabe said...

You got it taken care of. You rock. I look forward to the next Tarot reading.

Scarlet Blue said...

Techbabe: Thank you... I will have to get my psychic juices flowing.

Kevin Musgrove said...

I share your pain. I'm not able to spend much time on my blogs lately and most of that is being spent actually trying - and failing! - to get to see any of my postings and the comments. No time left to actually post anything. And rarely get access to the blogroll to comment on others' blogs. Grrr.

I think I'm going to have another look at that "migrate everything over to Wordpress" process...

Nikos said...

Έχετε μια τουρκική γιαγιά με κάθε ευκαιρία;

Scarlet Blue said...

Kev: Oh crikey. Is it your computer or is it Blogger? It's all becoming a bit of a nightmare. I do have a Wordpress Blog and standby.

Nikos:Γιατί ό, τι είπα;!

Granny merhaba diyor!

Happy Frog and I said...

It feels odd leaving a comment to a post detailing difficulties leaving comments on posts. I feel like I'm in a parallel universe. Cool!...

wendy house said...

I love how Happy Frog managed to leave two comments at a time when many can't even leave one! That's just showing off ;-)

KEVIN JACKSON said...

Ms S.
I've warned you about scrolling around before!!!!!
... and ...
I see I'm now in-listed under an interrogative, and I'm not alone.
There will be trouble and only in copperplate can save you.

Mitzi said...

Dearest Scarlet.

I'm desperate to get away for some winter sun. Could you do some scrying and let me know what the weather is going to be like in Palma, Mallorca, say, the first week to 10 days in March? Or perhaps you could suggest somewhere. Flying time kept to an absolute minimum and no muslim countries. Oh to feel the warm sun on my flanges again!

Much obliged

Mitzi

Scarlet Blue said...

Mr Nikos: Onlar Devon bir yan kuruluşu var mı?

HappyFroggy: So cool you did it twice!

Wendy: ...as Wendy has already pointed out!

Mr Kevin: I don't think my efforts in copperplate are going to save anyone. Sadly. I am wonderful at downward strokes... but I get a bit wobbly on my way up.

Mitzi: I see us togther! There are lots of men in white uniforms... there are sun loungers... and bingo... and fruit machines. We are on a cruise and we are heading for Gibraltar.
Careful, Mitzi, come away... No...

Erm, there was an incident involving a Barbiary Ape... I can't say any more, the vision has passed.

Lulu LaBonne said...

Is there no end to your talents? Please come and read my pipes next xxx

Mitzi said...

Am I going to be raped and pillaged by a Barbiary Ape?

nursemyra said...

What a fabulous song! It's enough to get me up and dancing

Nikos said...

Hiçi, maalesef eşeğin iğdiş edilmiş İstanbul'da ettiği ve Devon'a gezmek için refuse

Clyde said...

Oh, I'm glad you are familiar with a two hole mixer.
It save the embarrassment

Scarlet Blue said...

Lulu: I cleansing my staunch and flow for some new readings...

Mitzi: There's no easy way to say this...

Mr Nikos: Please do not mention Donkeys on this blog. I am sensitive.

Tony: Have Blogger security thrown you out before you finished your com

Clyde: Are you familiar with the O-ring?

Nikos said...

Wilco, no need to make more of an ass of myself

Mr Nikos: I will find the link to the donkey post, and then you will understand why...!
