Previously, this blog was using a comment system called HaloScan. For whatever reason, HaloScan is kaput, and I've had to reload the blog template with Blogger's default comment system. This means all existing comments on the blog have been lost.
I have backup files of all the past comments except the most recent. At present, there is no means of importing them, but I will do so if the software to do it becomes available and reaches my notice.
If anyone commented with links to something--something relevant and non-trollish--that I hadn't mentioned on the blog and that you wanted to make sure didn't escape my notice, shoot me an e-mail. My e-mail address is in the sidebar. Relevant and non-trollish things do include your free on-line novels but do not include your shady online college degrees or pharmaceuticals.
I currently have comment moderation off. With HaloScan, this worked just fine, but if lots of spam, trolls, and flames start showing up now that we're back to the original system, I will gradually raise the security level as needed. So everyone please continue to play nice.
I apologize for the inconvenience, and for the comments that have been lost permanently.
