Blogger and HaloScan

Maybe you've also noticed the stupid move by Google/Blogger to limit commenting on Blogger to people with Google/Blogger accounts leaving out other people using another blogging platform.

This is a screenshot of the new comment form field with only anonymous or nickname is left without a link back to the commenter.

What I did was to install HaloScan for commenting as well as not removing the comments field in my other blog so as not to remove old comments. I need the old comments (as well as it's good for the search engines). My main blog uses a modified classic template so I had to manually edit it plus insert a Google rant.

Let me know if you have other solutions for this stupidity.
