Thank you +WordPress for screwing up a perfectly good commenting system.

First I tried commenting on some blogs I read that are hosted by wordpress and they state that since I have a wordpress.com account I have to sign in. Well I now self host so why would I want someone to click on my name in the comment and have it link to my old wordpress.com site and not http://beartoons.com?

So I change the email associated with the old wordpress.com blog and now they give you an error that if you have a Gravatar account with that email you have to sign in as well.

C'mon. I have been singing the praises of Wordpress for years saying how user friendly it is to comment versus Blogger. Now it looks like if this stays I won't be commenting around as much on Wordpress blogs.

For more on this and Wordpress' so far lack of response see this thread:
