I could have replaced "WordPress" with Disqus or any number of other formats that I can't think of at the moment. For that matter a WordPress blog owner could probably write the same post about Blogger or blogspot blogs. It's just those weird little complications that make commenting a bigger hassle.
Many bloggers swear by WordPress and think it's the top of the line of blogging experience. I can't say not ever having had a WP blog. I've thought about starting a WP blog, but do I really need another blog? I suppose I could export one of my Blogger blog's content to a WordPress site as an experiment, but that seems like a lot of trouble.
Why the blogging factions anyway? Can't all of the blog hosting sites just get together and make it easier to comment on all blogs without jumping through hoops to comment on sites where the host is not the same as mine. Seems like I always have to go through a lot of extra work to comment on a WP blog and then many times my long thoughtful comment ends up in a spam folder. Well, that is, I used to leave some long comments on WP blogs but I stopped doing it when they were getting eaten so much of the time.
And I guess the WP bloggers run into similar issues with Blogger. How often do I get a WP blogger commenting on my posts? Hardly ever. I'm guessing that it's because commenting is a hassle for them. Then again maybe those bloggers are just WordPress snobs who think Blogger is beneath them
No I'm not switching anytime soon. The WordPress blogs mostly all look alike while Blogger blogs come in an array of colors and designs. If blogs were movies then WordPress would be dry documentaries and haughty dramas while Blogger would be cartoons, action films, 3-D, and all sorts of experimental genres. Where Blogger is fun, WordPress is too pedantic and serious.
There are many bloggers on WordPress whom I like a great deal, but seriously guys and gals, can you stop being so serious? Even the funny blogs come across as kind of serious. And that's not funny.
So let me retract my opening statement. I won't say I hate WordPress blogs. But sometimes I sure get annoyed trying to leave a comment.
Now watch all those WordPress bloggers who never comment on my site show up today. Howdy you all!

CassaStorm by Alex J. Cavanaugh
A storm gathers across the galaxy…
Byron thought he’d put the days of battle behind him. Commanding the Cassan base on Tgren, his only struggles are occasional rogue pirate raids and endless government bureaucracies. As a galaxy-wide war encroaches upon the desert planet, Byron’s ideal life is threatened and he’s caught between the Tgrens and the Cassans.
After enemy ships attack the desert planet, Byron discovers another battle within his own family. The declaration of war between all ten races triggers nightmares in his son, shaking Bassan to the core and threatening to destroy the boy’s mind.
Meanwhile the ancient alien ship is transmitting a code that might signal the end of all life in the galaxy. And the mysterious probe that almost destroyed Tgren twenty years ago could be on its way back. As his world begins to crumble, Byron suspects a connection. The storm is about to break, and Byron is caught in the middle…
