Singnet users have problems creating new post on Blogger

Blogger/Blogspot users who are using Singnet may be facing problems creating and editing posts. I found out from the Blogger Help Group that the temporary solution is to include a "2" into the url. Jordan, a Google employee wrote this on the Blogger Help Group:
Thanks for doing continuing to update this thread - looks like you did some good investigating! So, let me see if I've got a good understanding of what's going on here:

- The post editor shows up in a jumbled fashion, as demonstrated by

- This happens in both Firefox and IE, but perhaps not in the outdated IE 6
- Those who are affected are Singnet users in Singapore
- If you change the post editor's URL to "www2" instead of "www," you're able to get a normal post editor
I'm posting this using Singnet now (I'm a Starhub user) and it works using the solution given above but I do hope that Singnet can work with Google to solve this weird and highly irritating problem once and for all. Blogger employee Jordan again:
We're still attempting to get in contact with Singnet, so unfortunately we don't have an update right now. The problem is on their end and particular to their users, so it's tough for us to have much force to ignite a change. Thus, as a Signet user, I HIGHLY recommend calling, emailing, and doing whatever it takes to get in touch with your provider and making them aware of the problem and asking for a change. Unfortunately, this one is partially out of our hands. That doesn't mean that we're not trying to fix it, but it means that it's up to Signet to make some changes. Let us know if you have any luck.
Now everyone, Singnet sux!
