    Oh, what a comprehensive torpedo of a handy tutori... Oh, what a comprehensive torpedo of a handy tutorial about burning, analyzing, publicizing, monetizing and optimizing your feed through Feedburner, dear Reetha!

    Your blog is soon becoming a better online blogger help-center, which is, in fact, a big respite from the boring and mostly frustrating original blogger help-center.

    Kudos to you for the immense help that your are providing us fellow bloggers with. Thank you for it all. Plz carry on the superb service. :)

    I'm a bit dazed, dear Reetha, as to why my comment was edited and the link to my blog removed from it...?

    I started adding the link to my blog in my comments after learning the same from your very tutorial here pretty thankfully, and hence, am in a bitter maze to see this unprecedented & unethical treatment to my comment.

    I would highly appreciate, if you could help me out of this daze, please.

    Thanks!

    Shrinath Vashishtha said...

    Well... Any reservations in replying to my comments, now, dear Reetha!?

    I'm flabbergasted as to what's gone so wrong that you, now don't even bother to reply to my comments...?

    Communication clears all doubts and grievances off; hence, it's wise to restore communication with me and care to explain the reason behid your resorting to something so awful.

    You were talking of building relationships with your readers some time ago. Is this how you build relations with your readers by not even replying to their queries!?

    I'm sorry to say that I'm stunned by your reaction...

    Dear Shri, It was not doing any sort of injustice to you. I will describe the real story behind it. After publishing our comment linking article, some email came to us showing that this way of commenting created much link spamming to their blogs. Also they request us to develop a new tool that a blog owner could Edit a published comment( you know, blogger didn't give that facility). We were trying since last two weeks developing such a tool, even we were not replying or not concenterating on replying comments. Only our preloaded, scheduled posts came online as usual. Lets come back to point, on our way of developing such a tool, we did some experiments, on our blogs and unfortunately some quality comments were deleted /edited and changed..some of them we managed to get it back, but some we couldn't. One of them is yours and we are highly regreting for such an incident happened. Well, as you can see in your next comment, we didnt make any changes and everything as usual. And we are very happy to answer your question. Hopes that you are happy in our answers.Kindly forgive us for such an act
