I'm thinking I hate "Intense Debate," the system that manages comments on here. It's cumbersome, and buggy. What I liked about it was that it permitted nested comments, and promised to allow me to reply to comments by e-mail. It turns out, the e-mail feature doesn't work (at least not reliably, which is the same as not working – worse, actually, since I occasionally type replies to comments and e-mail them, and assume they've been posted, and then later see that, half the time, they haven't).
A note on commenting
Which is all to say, I'm thinking of getting rid of it, switching back to Blogger's built-in, but not particularly richly featured, comments. Anyone who blogs and has thoughts, or comments a lot on blogs, I'd love them.
One unfortunate cost of switching would/will be that I lose all the comments people have left to date. I guess a reason in favor of doing it sooner, rather than later.
SO: If you have thoughts/experience/advice on the matter, I'd love to hear from you, whether in the comments here or via e-mail.
