Sharing Bookmarklet No Longer Works

The sharing bookmarklet does not work. Each and every time I use the bookmarklet, it reports: "Sorry, but there was an error trying to share this story." Previously, the bookmarklet would issue the error but the story would appear on my Blurblog anyway. Now, the bookmarklet issues the error and the story never makes it to my Blurblog. So effectively, the bookmarklet is completely pointless.

Separately, as a related feature request, I think the bookmarklet should open in a pop-up window. The overlay model makes it impossible to copy/paste parts of the underlying article - instead, you have to just share the whole thing and edit in the overlay window, which can prove frustrating. In terms of user expectations, both Tumblr's sharing bookmarklet and Google Reader's old sharing bookmarklet both opened in new windows.
