In this post, I’m going to walk you through my experiences with Disqus as a blog owner, my readers’ experiences with it, and the advantages and disadvantages of Disqus.
With Django deprecating their contrib comments module, they suggested that we switched to Disqus as an alternative.
As an evangelist for Word Press (not an official job), I know I should spend more time making my site better. Because I spend my time helping other companies get better. One of the things I’d heard people didn’t like about Disqus was the ads.
All while I now help a larger agency and their staff optimize how they support large enterprises adopt Word Press. Not only did I not want ads, but I work hard at creating specific and useful content and I didn’t want the latest pop news to show up on my site. And if you’re using Disqus right now, you might want to think about this too.
So when complaints arise, you have to take them seriously and weigh them in terms of how they affect the majority of your audience.
