So I'm considering making Haloscan the comments engine for my blog. Here are the good things about Haloscan (vs Blogspot comments):
You don't have to sign in or register to leave a comment.
I can provide a "latest comments" section in my sidebar to help the discussions going.
I can provide you with an RSS feed of all the comments.
The bad things about Haloscan comments are:
It doesn't look as slick as the blogspot comment engine.
The comments page will have some advertising.
There's a small chance that spammers will flood the comments section.
So what I will do is set up Haloscan for the next two or three posts, starting with this one. If people have any opinions about which they prefer then they can drop a comment in this post. If it works okay, than I will use Haloscan for all future posts. And if not, I'll revert back to blogspot comments. Note that there will be a "Latest comments" section in the sidebar on the right within an hour of my posting this. So let's see.
Update (5-Jan-05): I've decided to ditch haloscan and use a nifty hack from BloggerHacks (cheers Abdu). I think it should solve all my problems. Again, let's see how it goes. And don't worry, I have all your Haloscan comments stored... I will add them manually tonight.
