I am so glad that I did not make my primary and kept that for Facebook. It is a bit shameful to say that they are all gone! The service may close but as a courtesy and also with some attitude for respecting the user content trusted with Opera, it should been backed up and made available for those who missed the notification bus.
What I do miss however were the comments on my blogs that are now gone. Those comments and the thread cannot truly be replicated. they carried context and also presented a time-line view on opinions. Sad as it may be that the closure was so sloppily managed, well, that is how things change and move on. Sigh!
As one commentator said on this thread previously, Opera is by no means a small operation, but simply acting like one.
