Blogger must have decided it was losing money so it redid its interface to make it much harder to use. I think they want us to all stop using it, which I am considering because it is so much harder to use now.
I love this bug: you can't backspace from your new post. You're just stuck forever on your dashboard after you publish a new post.
And I can't understand why you can't block hecklers and harassers from commenting. That's a function just about every communication technology has and no medium needs it more than blogs, since they are magnets for loons.
