I find this *really* convenient...

Bring up someone's blog.
Add a comment.
Log in using your old (pre-beta) acct info.
Put in the word-verification string.
Click Submit.
Machine tells you your acct has been merged with Google acct such-and-such, gives you a button to log in with Google acct.
Log in with Google acct.
You're no longer anywhere near the blog you were on, and your comment has disappeared.

Well done, guys!

and does it come up with a security prompt about "secure/nonsecure" items? EVERY TIME i navigate thru comments -- even leaving the comment area. now, that's annoying. does this dialog box pop up for you too?

Insanity! I'm sick of it!

If you write a comment and then fill in the name and password to log in, your comment will be cleared. I learned the hard way to always highlight and copy the comment before logging in.

Google seems to think that if a product is beta, then bugs are tolerable. I wonder how long until politicians start claiming that their policies are still beta. :)
