Intense Debate. How fitting.

After receiving over 9000 complaints about how awful the default Blogger commenting system is, I finally decided to look around for a better alternative. The other alternative system I usually see on other Blogger blogs is Haloscan, which in my opinion is almost if not equally as annoying as what I previously had. After invocations to Google Almighty, I stumbled across this blog which then led me to (appropriately named, for this blog at least) Intense Debate Comments.

Now, you can respond directly to a particular comment by clicking 'Reply' without having to scroll up and down the page to locate that one comment among tons of other comments. After my anti-Scientology thread reached 141 comments, I finally decided that enough is enough and it was time to make the move.

Although it is easy to create an account for Intense Debate (all you need is your e-mail address and password), keeping in line with the no-holds-barred comment policy of this site, you do not need to create an account to comment. You just need to fill in your name field similar to what you have been doing previously.

Old posts still use the old commenting system as importing the old comments led to a major fuck up and I ended up having a lot of missing/repeated comments. Pounding creationists, theistards, and various idiots has become a lot easier now. Just click 'Reply', pound, laugh and enjoy the drama.

Onwards, science soldiers! Intense Debate starts now!
