Problem with Gravatar Comments on WordPress
As a blogger that uses Blogger, the comment feature of WordPress blogs has always been something I've admired and been envious of. They have always been "open" and easy to use. When the company that owns WordPress acquired Gravatar it made using the comment feature that much nicer. I could comment on WordPress blogs and display my logo in the comments like I do in the comments of Blogger blogs. Last month after trying to leave comments on blogs like Plant Propaganda and Theatrum Botanicum I was met with the page pictured above. I've never seen this before and I had never been asked to sign in when using my Gravatar before. Any of you WordPress people know why I suddenly need to sign in when commenting on WordPress blogs? I suppose I could try to find out what my password is, but aint nobody got time for that!
Anyway, all you WordPress people I visited your garden blogs and would've left you a comment except for that stupid screen above.
