All in the Family featured the curmudgeonly Archie Bunker. Archie was television’s most famous grouch, blunt, blustering, straightforward and untouched by the PC crowd. He was the archetype of the conservative male. Michael desprately tried to reeducate him, but he persisted in his breviloquence.

Looking back at the last 40 years, we realize: ARCHIE WAS RIGHT!


Notice of discontinuation of service

JS-Kit, Haloscan and Echo Comments will be discontinued on October 1st, 2012.

As many of you know, in late 2010, Echo decided to shift our product strategy and start offering a real-time platform as opposed to strictly a commenting application. Since then, Echo has evolved our original commenting solution into a new business model that provides a real-time platform for social tv, social news, social music and social commerce. As such, we unfortunately can no longer commit to the level of support that you have come to expect on our original commenting product.
Today, we are announcing our decision to “end of life” the commenting widgets previously known as JS-Kit Comments, Haloscan, and Echo Comments. We will keep the service running for the next 6 months until it shuts down on October 1st, 2012. We will only be able to address password recovery related support questions and won't be able to respond to other inquiries.
If you have a recurring payment setup with your Paypal account, please log into your Paypal account now and cancel your Echo subscription. We will continue to have access to the service until October 1st, 2012.
Over the years, we had the chance to get to know many of you personally. We have been following your blog posts, helped the growth of your small businesses, your personal life events, your photography and other hobbies. We know that those comments collected over the years matter to you and we know that there are limited options to preserve them.
Best regards,
The Echo Team
"we unfortunately can no longer commit to the level of support that you have come to expect"

To be honest my expectation  from your product has been rather low, and you've done a great job not meeting it.  This creates anoher problem, namely what to do after your gone.  Anyone have any other suggestions on what to replace Echo with?
