Ok, I have tried everything but this brain surgery equivalent suggested here to import the old Haloscan comments into the new Disqus system. And all I can say is, as the French would put it-
J'en ai marre!
Je m'en fous!
The only way out now is the long way round - to manually paste in the old comments into the new system. Which is what I'm, alas, have to do.
To identify the these comments, there will be a footnote for each comment pointing out the original comment date and a link to this post. E.g.-
Why don't those jholawalas get together and go to some socialist hellhole country, if they love them so much. First to go should be Arundhati roy

Let the drudgery begin!
Whew, done! Anybody notice anything missing, you tell me, OK?
