Today while moderating the pending comments on my blog, after pressing Publish or delete, it took a lot of time saying saving and received an error message at last. This message says "We're sorry, but we were unable to complete your request.... ". At the end of this message there is an error code something like "bX-oefv42----" and they recommend to provide this code when I report this issue to support. One of the suggestion I received was to upgrade the current interface and I did it. However, no luck. I still see this message when ever I try to publish or reject the pending approval comments. If you are not familiar with this alert, I suggest you to have a look at the picture below.

Blogger says some of their users see this bX code while commenting. Since they are studying more about it, they request others to help them with more inputs. What blogger suggests is to report this error in Blogger support group with the exact error code you received.
