Economics and similar, for the sleep-deprived
A subtle change has been made to the comments links, so they no longer pop up. Does this in any way help with the problem about comments not appearing on permalinked posts, readers?
Update: seemingly not
Update: Oh yeah!

Like I care what you think ....
Hmmmm .... well a glance at the original NetComments comments link suggests that they've gone to a place where no amount of whining from me will get comments back, so it's "Bye Bye NetComments, and your bizarre generosity" but "Hello, E-Net-Ation comments, and your equally bizarre generosity". SInce the new comments company has both an "e", a "net" and a pun in its title, I'm guessing that they may be something of a "dot com" company, so don't post any 500 word essays without saving a copy. I'll try and find out what's happened to the old NetComments comments, but my guess is that they've gone forever.
You can't get the service for free, these days, I ask you .... still, I learned quite a lot in this quest; specifically, I learned that no matter how you tweak the code, it is not possible to fool other peoples' comments servers into hosting comments for me.
update: "enetation server busy". Some things speak volumes louder than comments, and the voice of God telling me not to have comments is one of them.
