A Scathing Blogger Criticism

I've just written a great article criticizing Blogger. Just wait for the article to load. As soon as Blogger loads the article, you'll see why Blogger isn't very good. Any moment now, an article that takes the proverbial wind out of Blogger's sails will load and reveal my scathing criticism. Wait until you see it. It's really quite awesome, if I do say so myself.

...

Any moment now.

Wow. That is all I can say. That must be the greatest article ever written. I cant believe someone was able to come up with that. It blows the mind and boggles it too. If thats possible. If not then it is just a good article.

Oooh, way avant-garde.

You are absolutely an amazing, articulate man. Your article says volumes not only about your experiance with blogger but blogger itself. Masterful.

It blows your mind and googles it too.

I was going to post a comment as soon as I read this...but it sat there forever saying "waiting for www.blogger.com".

Too cool for words.

 
At 8:55 PM, Blogger 123-I-Love-You said...

Thank you. I'm glad it's not only my blog.

By the way, your way of dealing with blogger-induced frustration is much better than mine (punching myself repeatedly in the genitals).

Hah.

 
At 10:55 PM, Blogger A Poor White Man said...

I'm picking up on your sarcasm, and it is in fact well warranted. Blogger has indeed sucked quite a bit as of late.

 
At 11:03 PM, Blogger SleekBlackMercedes said...

Best of the worst...is the way I see it. :)

 
At 11:50 PM, Blogger mance01 said...

Well, it seems to be working a bit better now. No doubt in response to your amazingly well-written and oh-so-scathing editorial. Way to stick it to the man...or whoever runs blogger.

That is a risky article! How, might I add, did you come to have such huge bufallo balls?

Your article touched me deeply. I feel so much better knowing that others share my plight .....

saw a write up abt ur blog in the papers (frm singapore). after reading part of an entry in the papers i decided tt ur blog is a must read... wow... every entry makes me laugh and grin at the com screen... great job!!

Although your commentary never loaded in IE, in Mozilla it came right up (consider this for the problem you are having). As for the difficulties you outline in Part IV, just press F4 while clicking the blog reset and you will circumvent the Template Redundancy. Parts V-VII of your complaint are simply caused by the effect known in programming circles as Jingo's Schism. Rescan your Blog's output map with a new line-init and then reboot as an adjunct.

I just wrote a not so articulate criticism of blogger yday! Thanks for expressing my feelings so much betterer.

I've been a long time user, but this is a good opportunity to remind everyone that Fire Fox is much better than Internet Explorer.

There's nothing funny about bad browsers.

Okay, it's a little funny.

This posting is completly gay and stupid. Moreover, this blog kind of sucks. Actually it really suck, and I have no idea why it's on Bloggers "Blogs of note." Later Chief

 
At 1:00 PM, Blogger Former Intern Andy said...

It's okay. I still love you, person who thinks my blog is "gay and stupid."

 
At 3:01 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

gay as in "having or showing a lively mood" i totally agree.

thanks for putting the "lively" back into my work day.

also...you should try typepad, i've had no problems with that fab sixapart site.

Thought I'd stop by while I'm waiting for the blogger article to load and say hi and that I love your witticisms.

I'm going to go read that article now. I'm SURE it'll be there by now.

(BTW, I'm hoping you're still reserving the right to assume the use of sarcasm.)

 
At 9:05 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

it's forever loading, the article never show up errrssssp...

 
At 9:22 PM, Blogger Mimi in NY said...

Hi

I'm sorry to hijack this site. I have made many a sarcastic comment and thus am in no way qualified to throw myself on your mercy.

BUT I'm going to anyway. I am in the weird situation of facing potential deportation for writing a leftie article about immigration in the Village Voice, and would appreciate some support. Should I be thrown out or not? What do you think?

Here's the link:

look for MIMI and you'll find my story....

I agree with you on pretty much everything. Instructions on how to break/bypass the law is a gray area, but I believe in absolute free speech, so...

 
At 12:24 AM, Blogger c said...

I wish everyone could be so eloquent in their criticisms! I am stuck in the bitching stage. But you, dear intern, have truly demonstrated the capacity of man (!!). Rah rah rah.

Is there no other way I can view the article besides what is taking forever to load in internet explorer? I would really like to read it but....

Am I missing something? It looks the same in IE and Firefox to me? Just a box that says "loading..." right?

er, perhaps.
methinks you're missing the humor.
good luck with that.

 
At 4:28 PM, Blogger Lia said...

I've been trying all day to post this comment, and all I wanted to say was:

Joy shared is joy multiplied. Misery shared is misery divided.
Thanks for sharing! I feel so much better now.

One thing I have learned from my experience with Blogger is that when it seems like all is lost . . .

. . . it might not be. Sometimes it turns up on your blog an hour later. Patience is a virtue. I think.

It never worked for me, but I will take your word for it. I was debating about switching over to Blogger from Xanga, don't think so now. There is a discussion about Blogger's recent issues in Flickr.com too.

 
At 3:22 AM, Blogger Mimi in NY said...

Thanks Andy. The Right wingers and the Minutemen are posting me some nasty shit right now, very weird when last week I was just an anonymous ba-itch. I love coming to your site and forgetting all the NY politics and remembering why I came here.x

Hey, what dept do you work for? I'm an intern at Comedy Central as well. I work in promos on the 8th floor.

9th floor... I've got a mohawk now, so I'm not hard to spot.

 
At 4:17 PM, Blogger Gloria Glo said...

Whew. I'll bet the higher-ups at Blogger could barely sleep through the night after that public recrimination.

(That said, quite witty. Blogger has been very annoying lately. Don't they know we rely on them for our "I should be working instead of playing on the internet" hours?!)

So true. It took me 4 tries today before Blogger would let me post.

Andy, watch the O'Reilly Factor at 8pm on Thursday the 7th April

Sure. I'll have to catch the rerun at ten, but I'll be sure to catch it. Good luck with everything.

I have been waiting and waiting and waiting for FOUR DAYS to download and read your article! Can you believe it? Can someone give me a brief synopsis of what it says? C'mon, man, someone have mercy on me, this waiting is killing me!

How long does it take to load? I've been waiting her at my computer for abt a week, and it just keeps doing the same thing.

Oh wait, that's Blogger not working right and making me think I should move to a different server for my blog. I've been tempted to change but when I do that's when Blogger decides to work. Almost like it reads my mind.

Hey Andy, your website is great. mine's still in progress, but if u want to check it out, it's www.hamtersarecute.blogspot.com

At 11:28 PM, Blogger Steve said...

Brilliant.

I wound up ditching Blogger last week and moving my blog to a Moveable Type app running on my hosting guy's server. Apparently it was hell to install but the results are just plain delicious. It even imported my blogger blog.

Multi-categorized posts, comment approval cycles, and all kinds of other goodness I haven't even discovered yet. I think it cost something like $60 US to buy, and then whatever you're paying to host your site. Mind you blogspot types would need to find a site host. Oh well.

 
At 11:28 AM, Blogger Kate said...

This was really really stupid. I don't even find blogger slow. In fact, I'd say it was the opposite. I really don't know why this was a Blog they noticed
