After trying various ways of tracking comments, I have settled (I think) on HaloScan. This will allow me not only to track but (when needed) ban spammers. Your earlier comments are all still on my blog, but it will be sometime before I can import them. I do have them all in my gmail account should you have a burning desire to see what you wrote.
Also, please notice that on the right hand side underneath site hits, you will see a column that shows the recent comments. Hopefully this will encourage more lively discussions among us.
