It worked well for me back when I used it, but there were some rather annoying importing/exporting issues. I don't think you could import Intense Debate comments if you were to switch back to the native Blogger system later (unless they made major changes recently). If you think you may return to the native comments later, consider Disqus, they post the comments to Blogger in the background, so you'll have them just in case.But overall: Intense Debate worked fine and it's all about you feeling comfortable with how your blog works.
Thank you! I changed my comment system once before, but I don't remember to what! Hahaha! Still looking into it!
If you change, I'll be curious to hear your feedback. I have been thinking about coming off of Blogger as well, mostly because I'm tired of getting emailed every time a spam comment comes in, which lately has been 8-10 a day!
You should do it for the same reason I posted below. I don't get emailed if you reply to my comments on your blog! Disqus and ID email commenters when the original poster replies. :D
I'll let you know Ali! Thanks Anne!
Yes. Do it. Or Disqus. The comments you have now don't tell me (and probably others) when you reply to our comments!!! Intense Debate and Disqus emails your fans when you've replied! :D
Another vote here to consider disqus- I love it!
That's the reason I want to change over.
I'm thinking about switching to Intense Debate too, but I'm scared to lose my old comments!
you know im a big big fan of ID!
Yep, I totally do!
Disquis is awesome because you can respond to comments directly from your email
I think ID can too! Looking into it.
Thank you for taking the time to read and comment on my blog! I love getting comments! Though I may not be able to respond to each one right away, I do read and appreciate each and every one, they are actually a highlight of my day! If you have any questions, I'll try my best to respond quickly! If you would like for me to check out your blog, email me your link: geekyowl (at) gmail (dot) com.
