I wanted to add an update to my previous article, which was removed.
I received an email from BlogClicker regarding my account, and they have checked into it, assuring me I received all of the credits I have earned. I'm not sure why this didn't record in the surfbar or on the "member status" screen, but I do know computer glitches can and do happen, and am willing to assume the best in this case. All I wanted from the beginning was a response, and it was the lack of a response, not necessarily the other issues, that pissed me off.
I do hope the customer service issues improve, but everyone is entitled to an off day.
