Our long nightmare with our comment system may finally end. TM-Free Blog will be offline from 10 pm until 12 midnight EDT on Wednesday evening, 05/12/10, so that we can install a new Disqus-based commenting system.
The new system will contain all previous TMFB comments in its database, so nothing should be lost in the transition.
One notable advantage to the Disqus system is that comments may not be edited or deleted once they have a reply—although posters have the freedom to edit them until there is a reply. This will avoid the unfortunate ability of JS-Kit users, the commenting system we are now using, to delete their posts—and their replies—for whatever reason they chose. Recently this allowed authors to delete posts by Drs. Fred Travis and David Orme-Johnson.
