Blogger no longer supports 'open ID' comments

I'm not exactly sure what this means. Please, can someone tell a technophobe, in plain English, what effect this will have on the readers of my blog, especially the 594 followers.

IT is also no longer sending email notifications that comments have been made. Lots of complaints on the Blogger Open Forum … but as yet no fix that works 100%.

OpenID: Blogger previously allowed users to comment on blogs using an existing third party OpenID identity provider and has also acted as an OpenID identity provider when interacting with other systems on the internet. Due to the low usage of this feature, Blogger will no longer support OpenID as a provider or for making comments, and all comments that previously used OpenID will be anonymized. New comments can be posted either from a Google account or labeled as "Anonymous" on blogs that allow it.

@James. I just went to your blog and posted "Test" …all seems to be as before.
Maybe by "open ID" they mean People without a Google account..but if thatīs the case it ainīt stopped the usual Spammers posting

I think that you are forced to use your Google log in before you are allowed to post a comment on Blogger blogs.

Hi PB, yep, it was there. Thanks, the last line does it.

Hi DAF, thanks. That is the perfect answer.

I have used OpenID. It used to allow me to sign in to multiple websites without having to create new logins for each site. Not sure if it works anymore.

Frustration is the result. I'd like to post comments on 2 Blogger blogs and would normally use OpenID with my Wordpress credentials. This then provides a link back to my own Wordpress blog. I have no wish to use a Google account.

I think Google/Blogger has been playing too much "What a Tanker!" or some sort of similar terminology. 8O)
