So the comments were apparently having issues yesterday. Again. Some more. I finally got fed up and decided to go ahead and install Haloscan. The voice of the people will no longer be stifled by Blogger!
I didn't want to lose the comments I already had, so unfortunately, the old posts now have two comment links, and it looks really stupid, but there's not a whole lot I can do about it (though I guess I can turn off the comments on posts that don't have any). Oh well. You can't ask for everything.
