DIE Haloscan DIE!!

A year ago, Haloscan.com was a promising entity that provides bloggers with free management of one's comment's space. But I've realized that all those musings by vistors and friends were entirely erased at a certain time- I don't know why but I find it frustrating to see that the effort of those who passed by has disappeared.

An apology from them won't make up for all the words of encouragement and intelligent quips I have learned to enjoy reading throughout the past months. Don't they know that half the fun of blogging is to see people rattled in their seats that they are compelled to comment? I realized that perhaps its a bit of an ego trip, but hey, it's part of the ride. Because I don't choose or restrict my blog topics, nor tailor them to the prudency of the masses, my writings then are not pressured to conform. Thus, it's nice to read people dropping by like friends visiting a house while commenting on your latest diatribe. That's why it's infuriating for me and insulting on the part of the commentors that this has happened.

I needed to cut my losses hence I reverted back my comment page to good reliable Blogspot.
*Sigh. Life. And by the way Haloscan, if you are reading this, I curse your money-grubbing NASDAQ-delisted company and I hope your stupid main office be burned to the ground due to electrical causes. I curse your President, may he be killed by AIDS while having sex with his dog. I curse your staff and personnel, may they get pustular boils on their nipples, varicose veins on their noses and Grade III internal hemorrhoids for the rest of their miserable whiny whiny stupid drop-out American white-assed lives. DIE!!!

I'm still using Haloscan and granted it disappears every now and then, it always comes back. What happened to your Haloscan?

yuri said...

Soooo harsh ha... hahahaha Friends tayo ha. don't curse me. afraid na ko.

re: Comments, yeah.. ive always loved reading how peeps react on my current entry. ego boost? yes, but u know for me it's more than that. I feel accomplished actually because people do take their time to read my nonsense. hahahaha...

Kalma na ok? hahahah

banzai: hi! it seemed that the comments are only good for a limited time only. comments from last years (which i enjoy reading because they were so rabid) were wiped out... :(

yuri: hahaha... that was my other personality talking, not me. :) don't worry friends tayo!

I was planning to shift to Haloscan when somebody warned me that it will only give me a limited number of comments unless it's upgraded to pay accounnt. So, I stuck to Blogger. Hey, I like the way you curse the staff. It reminds me to be always careful with my comments here. Hehe.

Erm, you sound like a psycho...

And I hate this blogger 'word verification' crap.

rolly said...

so that's what happened. i was trying to look for that poetry interaction we had and put it in one of my entries in my poetry blog. Couldn't find it. Sayang.

kaya ako, kuntento na ko dito sa blogspot. Reliable pa.

Jules said...

kim: yes. if you'll see pustular boils in that part of your body, then you'll know it's by me. ;)

abaniko: i found out the hard way..damn. profiteering talaga ang haloscan

anonymous: thank you. takes one to know one :)

tito rolly: kaya nga bwisit ang haloscan. better stick to blogspot, at least they don't reel you in for the profit... you must check out the site: pinoypoets.org!

rolly said...

I am a member of pinoypoets. Sali ka! Saya dun.

ade said...

yowch!

and yep, haloscan is crap...

Jules said...

tito rolly: yehey... andun din ako.

ade: tnx for dropping by. you said it, haloscan is horsecrap.

Simmer down pare, you are getting worked up on your missing comments?
You are much smarter than this shit.. your worth isn't based on the comments that you get when you post (let's not even go there). You write and that's that. If no one comments, far out. If someone writes, then appreciate it just the same.

kiko: i know.. it's just frustrating na winipe out ng haloscan... kala ko naman trusted site siya for comments, di pala
