Disqus sucks: housekeeping notes
Well, y’all may have noticed that the comments thingy is different. I discovered that Disqus had taken it upon itself to install some kind of hideous adverts at the bottom of every post. This was not something I would ever have wanted and as soon as I discovered it, I deactivated Disqus.
For many reasons, Disqus is a pain, and I’m glad I don’t have to deal with their idiotic and often labyrinthine processes for moderating and checking messages, and I am glad I can deactivate the stupid thing in my email that kept putting a bunch of annoying crap in there through my connection with Disqus.
The problem is that the lion’s share of the site traffic, I’m informed, comes through having Disqus hooked up to the blog. It also makes comment moderation kind of weird and hard to figure out.
So, I’m doing a quick poll of readers: Disqus yes? Or Disqus No?
