                       NOTICE TO ‘COMMENTERS’ Update!

22.10.21.  Re the missing names mystery, we can’t say how to fix it. It is not caused by Morning Mail as our Chief System guru spent two days chasing tips without result. The feature appeared suddenly and disappeared just as suddenly on iPads. It still works on windows based systems apparently. Apple has received more than 600 complaints and couldn’t give a toss apparently, so nothing from that end—net zero!

Tried all the tips here:-
One suggestion that might work with some iPads is switch off private browsing if it is on. In other words, try as we might MM can do no more.

    Yairs, affected since a couple of days ago and considered poisoning yr water hole and salting yr acreage but as a person who has lead a life of peace and quiet, contemplation, and basic teetotalism, I refrained.

      🙂 Well stated Bots, that’ll learn ‘im!

      No other, um, earthly pleasures forgone, holy one?.😉
      With china run by the demented, USA run by the senile, England by a wokester, Russia by a thug and Aust by jellyd-cks……….., nah, an extra 10 secs entering name is not an issue.

  • Pensioner Pete 19/10/2021, 3:32 pm

    Yes, PP is affected.

    I am now using the Cache in my browser (Firefox) to auto-fill the name and email, not too difficult actually and works a treat.

  • Aktosplatz 19/10/2021, 3:36 pm

    Yes mine has gone too, but it autofills every time I start my name and email address.

  • DT 19/10/2021, 6:35 pm

    Yes, I have to type in my Name and Email now.

  • davey street 19/10/2021, 8:04 pm

    I’ve always typed in my name and email address on every comment. What’s the big deal ?

    I’ve always typed in my name and email address on every comment. What’s the big deal ??

  • Sir Peter 19/10/2021, 9:08 pm

    Me too. Both Apple devices

    I’m using Macbook pro with Opera and have no issue. MM.Ed.

    I never store my name and email on any database. I use an excel file to keep all those details and just do a copy and paste. No loss to me on this problem.

  • Graham Richards 20/10/2021, 8:38 am

    Yup, I’ve been affected too!
    What are the odds MM is being targeted. It’s the narrative you know. You must not tell the truth or criticise, ist verboten!!

  • Disgruntled 20/10/2021, 9:15 am

    It is what it is!
    At least we won’t forget our names and emails!

    Only a bit annoying but we will get over it and if we hadn’t had the experience of having had it we wouldn’t even know what we were missing and soon it will be “normal”. Many other sites require individual infills anyway.

    I do hope you can get it restored though!

  • Neville 20/10/2021, 9:25 am

    Same with me. Mac OS and Firefox.
    And no, it’s not REALLY a problem, just a bit of a nuisance.
    But it’d be nice if you’re able to work out what’s causing it!

  • Penguinite 20/10/2021, 2:26 pm

    I too use an autofill The lack of a tick box is more a nuisance than anything!

  • Muphin 21/10/2021, 7:04 am

    I am not concerned about the loss of this feature.

    Windows 10 with Mozilla Firefox (beats the stuffing out of Edge).

  • Sir Peter 21/10/2021, 9:37 am

    And now I can put in any fake email address I make up. Just shows – the spooks don’t really need it anyway as they have ID’ed your computer/phone the millisecond you connect.

  • Sir Peter 21/10/2021, 4:36 pm

    Yep, name alone will do.

    • Disgruntled 23/10/2021, 5:05 pm

      Sir Peter, none of what you say works for me; I still need a name, probably anything; but MUST have a VALID email or nothing happens!
      I’m using the old windows 7 with chrome; maybe old and ancient but then so am I; Adblocker also, haven’t tried with the blocker off though.

    The whole world is changing over to the very fast Quantum computer system. Make sure all your important data is backed up on a USB or equivalent.
    This link explains a little about what to expect. It will happen in the next few weeks I believe.
