Comments are working

Apparently, Google is finding it difficult to embed the comment form on the post itself. I've switched back to the old style of comments on a new page. Comments should be working now.


  1. Going for classic blogger comments, eh? Were all the alternative systems that bad for you? That sucks.

  2. did you lose all the old comments when you switched back? Because I'm getting sick of "IntenseDebate" comments on my blog.

  3. I lost the IntenseDebates comments when I switched back to Blogger comments, but that was when I switched back from the self-hosted Wordpress blog.

    This time, I just switched the comment layout, so all the blogger comments still remain.

  4. This comment has been removed by a blog administrator.


Please pick a handle or moniker for your comment. It's much easier to address someone by a name or pseudonym than simply "hey you". I have the option of requiring a "hard" identity, but I don't want to turn that on... yet.

With few exceptions, I will not respond or reply to anonymous comments, and I may delete them. I keep a copy of all comments; if you want the text of your comment to repost with something vaguely resembling an identity, email me.

No spam, pr0n, commercial advertising, insanity, lies, repetition or off-topic comments. Creationists, Global Warming deniers, anti-vaxers, Randians, and Libertarians are automatically presumed to be idiots; Christians and Muslims might get the benefit of the doubt, if I'm in a good mood.

See the Debate Flowchart for some basic rules.

Sourced factual corrections are always published and acknowledged.

I will respond or not respond to comments as the mood takes me. See my latest comment policy for details. I am not a pseudonomous-American: my real name is Larry.

Comments may be moderated from time to time. When I do moderate comments, anonymous comments are far more likely to be rejected.

I've already answered some typical comments.

I have jqMath enabled for the blog. If you have a dollar sign (\$) in your comment, put a \\ in front of it: \\\$, unless you want to include a formula in your comment.
