If you read my comments or try to post one you'll find that it's different. JS-Kit bought out Haloscan around a year ago and left things as they were. Until now. Now my Haloscan has turned into Echo and they want $12 a year to continue the service. I'm thinking about it. I really don't know that I have any alternatives where I don't end up losing the access and easy linkage to nearly five years worth of comments.
Just be aware that it appears you need to log in the first time you comment. If you hit the drop down box it gives you a list of options you're probably already using. Sorry for the sudden change. It wasn't my idea.
