If you use Blogger with Google+ for comments you will lose the ability to review comments

This is just a quick FYI - I have turned off Google+ for my blog because I cannot moderate the comments properly using Google+. I was hoping that Google would fix this sooner rather than later and it seems like it isn't a priority for them. The reason this is a problem for me is that when someone leaves me a comment in Google+ I have no idea unless I am looking at my Google+ feed. I never look at my feed because I don't like social media platforms.

The old Blogger comments system lets me know if I have comments pending and I can review them all in one place without having to go to each post individually. With Google+ I have to visit each of my posts individually to find unanswered/unreviewed comments; I refuse to fish for my pending comments.

Anyhow - sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused for people who have left Google+ comments in my past posts, but I cannot continue using Google+ until Google wises up and provides me a proper way to review comments. I was reading that there is a way to make each comment system run side by side, but I need more time to look into this claim.
