Google coders for the Blogger website are either incompetent or Google is lying when they claim to be working on a fix. They are not even acknowledging the problem as a known issue. They had an "Email Posts To" feature for many years. It emailed a post to the writer's address when the writer posted a blog entry. It's been "breaking" (or so they claim) regularly over the last few years and it takes them months to fix it, if they even acknowledge it. Maybe they ust want to discontinue the feature and are testing the level of customer dissatisfaction.
Whatever the reason, it sucks. Stop sucking, Google, you're supposed to be better than that.
