I first noticed it on Sunday over at Jerry's blog, Gently Said, and I wanted it. Immediately. Never mind the fact that I often don't play with my new features once they are out of the box. I wanted it. I NEEDED it.
I figured THIS would be the solution to those that comment but don't have their email connected (OR their blog linked - seriously? HOW do you expect to gain traffic if you don't at least have your profile linked? Am I right? Some of you are WordPressinians and your system is different. To you I give a pass (just barely), but to the Blogger users? You better have a darn good reason, dammit *stamps foot* to NOT have your blog linked - I can *almost* understand the email thing, but the lack of blog-linkage is inexcusable) so I can't respond unless I coerce or bribe them into giving me their email so I can bypass the whole firstname.lastname@example.org thing.
So I fired off an email to Jerry with a list of
He informed me that this was a new Blogger feature and that one day it was *just there.* WHAT?! It wasn't *just there* for me! So I did a little digging. Do this, change that and viola! THERE should be your threaded comments.....except they weren't.
I got nothing. I am not happy, Blogger. I WANT the shiny, new features (whether I utilize them or not) to "bling" my blog.
I read something about how this shiny, new feature may not work with "custom" templates....but, but, I DON'T have a custom template (insert whiny voice)! Ever since my custom template got hacked I've stayed true to YOU; I've only used your Blogger-blessed template....so where is my shiny, new feature, huh? What's a girl got to do to get this feature? I've been ALL OVER the web looking for a solution (okay, okay, not ALL OVER the web, but I HAVE looked) and I got nothing. So come on, Blogger, help a girl out....fix my problem and I'll love you forever, I promise.
And friends? If any of you have a solution, I'll love YOU even more....especially if it doesn't involve html....or you can explain it in Gigi-ese....which basically means do it for me, pretty please.
