Yes, I switched the comments over to Echo, no I didn't want to and no, I don't like it.
I pretty much had no choice and had to pay twelve bucks for the privilege.
Halo Scan is shutting down Feb 19th for good. If your blog is on Blogger, you will have to switch to Echo or something or else you will lose all of your previous comments and not have the ability for anyone to leave any. I had just shy of 4,000 comments and I have put way too much time and effort in this place to lose them over twelve lousy bucks.
Like anything else, in time we will all figure out how to use this new system.
