Bloggery Blues

The bright buggers at Blogger have informed me, and other bloggers, to expect exciting new changes within the near future. Some of them may be as soon as tomorrow! 
So why am I not as excited as them?
Firstly, half of it I don't understand and the half that does make (non)sense to me isn't very exciting at all.
It looks to me as if all third-party comments will have to be done via the Anonymous button which is why I'm asking names to be added at the end of your comment. Of course, if it is of a vitriolic nature which anonymous comments often are then it will not be posted even if you do give your name - I never realised how many M.Mouse's and D. Ducks there are in the jazz world.

Not only that but, past bona fide comments that were posted under the writer's name will, in one fell swoop, be changed by Blogger to 'Anonymous'.
Also, I know many click on to our posts via Facebook and Twitter but, it seems as though Networked Blogs have pulled the plug on that one unless I share each post on an individual basis (must order some more Midnight Oil).
I hope I'm wrong in my interpretation of these 'upgrades' but...
