Intense Debate – help me test this new commenting tool

[the test of this new feature is done and I've removed it from the blog less than 24 hours after installing it. If you want to know why read the comments below I've left the post just because. ]

Can you do me a quick favour and leave a comment on this post on www.unsweetened.caLittle Blue Pill

I just installed a new tool called Intense Debate which should allow me to compile comments here from multiple sources (I’d love to see all the comments from Facebook, twitter, etc, all summarized in the comments section below.)

But since turning this on has hidden all the past comments on the sitee (which it was not supposed to do) I need some help to see if this works as a basic commenting system for or whether I should rip it out immediately. 

Please leave me a comment below. Thanks!

    Ok, the new puppy & I are commenting.

    Turns out we had 3 comments, Marion’s above and 2 via Intense Debate.
    In addition to spreading comments across multiple platforms, I got feedback from a bunch of people that the comments section wasn’t working.
    So, on my iPad I got no comment section at all, on my desktop I got Intense Debate and on my phone typepad. TOO annoying!
    So Intense Debate is gonzo after less than 24 hours. Sorry for the interuption!

    Love intense debate!! I think readers are feeling much comfy by commenting using intense debate. I also use this plugin on my sites. Thanks

    The system is not bad. But I do not like the fact that if you click on the name of the commentator, get in his profile in Intese Debate, and not on its website. But a commentator on the site can still be hit. When you hover over the avatar, we will see a list of his accounts with Twitter, Facebook, etc., of course, provided that he has filled the data in the profile ID, and in the same list will be given a link to his site. But this method is inconvenient for people who for the first time see this commenting system.

    I had tried IntenseDebate just a little while ago and dumped it after less than an hour.
    I have a Blogger blog with a custom template and people who are not with Blogger have been having trouble being able to comment.
    IntenseDebate caused a ton of non-responsive script errors when I used Mozilla, booted me off my blog repeatedly when I used Google Chrome and lagged in both of these plus IE.
    I’m not an expert by any means, but this is so not cool. I will try to figure out Disqus…I have an account but am not great at altering blog templates, etc.

    Intense Debate is really superb commenting tool and I’ve been a long time user of it and very pleased with it. Thanks mate.
