Having reverted back to Blogger comments, HaloScan / Echo commenting is gone bye-bye. I've applied a new template; it seems that removing HaloScan required doing so for someone who knows next to nothing about html. If the white lettering on dark gray background is a big eyesore, please let me know. If not, maybe I'll keep this one for a while -- or at least until I tire of it.
Feel free to test the new commenting system. I prefer no anonymous postings, even if that means commenters have to sign their names at the end of their comments. I don't care if people use their real names, or made-up names, just so long as they pick a moniker and stick with it. I'm not going to make a huge deal out of the matter, however, as my commenters have been good about identifying themselves pretty consistently, in the past.
