No, I don't know where the hell the comments went. It may be that BackBlog truly did dissolve into air, into thin air.
I've been meaning to switch to HaloScan anyway; I managed to save an archive of the comments here up to the end of last year, so some of that may yet be restored. Should've updated recently! Oh, well.
In the meantime, I suppose you can always come around and harass me on the LJ.
