Blogger Has Us Seeing Stars .....

Missioner may be a Christian gentleman, and would decline using the Lord's name in vain. But Blogger, on the other hand, may have earned an epithet or two.

Apparently, his blog, West Texas Missioner was bedeviled by the sudden and inexplicable appearance of a 'review' feature, where each of his posts was tagged with a panel, asking readers to rate the post on a scale of 1-5 stars.

He had no idea how it got there, and he couldn't figure out how to get rid of it ..... and can any of you find a way to contact Blogger help directly or immediately?

It turns out "Blogger Goofed" ..... at least that's the line that eventually showed up in one of Blogger's 'Help Groups.'

Hey folks,

So we goofed up a bit and accidentally enabled an experimental feature
that was supposed to remain only on Blogger in Draft :P

Some of you may have noticed these star ratings, and we are currently
working to disable the feature for everyone at the moment. If you like
what you see though, you can still log into Blogger in Draft and
enable star ratings via

We apologize for any inconvenience, and will keep you updated with any
new developments. Thanks for hanging in there!

So now Missioner can get back to other matters, like Burmese cyclones. In the meantime, you might head over there and give a few 5-star ratings ..... everyone needs a little encouragement now and then.
