Eaton Rapids Joe notes that he’s heard about my commenting problem and that he’s heard of other cases. At least I think he’s talking about me. 🙂
At this point, I think that Google’s commenting apparatus has it in for me. I’ve tried everything from opening up the security settings and disabling extensions in existing browsers to downloading Vivaldi, an Opera-based browser and trying it both out-of-the-box and with the privacy setting wide open. I’ve not had an Opera-based browser on this machine (not a fan), so it can’t be picking up anything untoward from the Windows Registry. Still no commenting on multiple sites.
I’m going to retry my experiments on another laptop or maybe my iPad. This laptop is due a hard drive upgrade, and rather than simply cloning the drive I’m going to do a reinstall, Heaven help me. We’ll see how it goes.
