When I started writing Living in a Society, Blogger's own software did not allow for comments to be posted. This caused me to go to an outside blog comment provider, namely Haloscan. Last year Blogger introduced a comment function to its software but I still prefered my Haloscan service. Mostly because the Blogger commenting was cumbersome with the need to sign in and such.

Now Blogger has improved their comments function again. It is still not entirely too my liking but I think I'm going to switch over to it. My principal reason for doing so because comments archived by Haloscan tend do disappear after a month. For example, there are posts near the bottom of this page that originally had comments that have since disappeared, and none of the comments remain with posts in the archives. So I'm choosing permanance of the historical record over a prefered format.

Keep those comments coming, the conversation is one of the best parts of blogging.

Good to know. I was contemplating the switch to Haloscan, but now I'll stick with blogger.

You're just mad that your debate with David Wozney won't be part of the permanent record, aren't you?

Yes, yes I am. From now on the remarks of all anti-gay crazies will be inscribed for posterity.
