Haloscan now sucks
We’re sorry but we have temporarily discontinued the Edit Comment Feature. We will bring it back with additional functionality.

We apologize for the inconvenience. The issue is that Editing Comments is a contributing factor to the stability issues at Haloscan. The JS-Kit Team is making strides to improve scalability and performance for Haloscan.

To accomplish this we needed to first solve some big issues affecting the service.
Just as bad as what they did is the nauseating corporate talk announcing it days afterwards, cornball elegance as Paul Fussell described it, the kind of thing I’ve dedicated my life to eradicating from print.

Sounds like that chain-shop hack who tried to sell me a new gearbox for two thousand smackers.

What really happened:
The Haloscan commenting system has been sold to someone else.
The smileys don’t work any more either.

When I find an editing script that works with Blogger I’ll probably switch.
