2010-030-30 Note: I am NOT using Disqus. It's unsuitable for my needs.
I want to experiment with Disqus comments. I'm not happy with my current home-grown system and while I am somewhat reluctant to outsource comments, there are advantages.
Some readers will remember that I once briefly flirted with Google Friend Connect comments. That is entirely too weak for my purposes, so I dropped that.
For the moment, I'm only using Disqus on this page and a few others. If it works out, I may extend it elsewhere - we'll see.
Feel free to leave a comment about comments, especially if you see something in Disqus that you hate or even just find annoying.
Update June 22,2009
The biggest problem I have is Firefox. I don't know if this happens with
all platforms, but at least on Mac, Disqus is unusable. Note that I'm not
doing anything unusual, not running esoteric plugins, but it just doesn't
work - you can't login from clicking on the links provided and after making
a post it throws me to the Community page - completely unacceptable.
I'd need other features also. I sometimes need to move a comment
to a different post - the comment was fine, but belongs elsewhere. I also
would need more sophisticated filtering than just keywords.
Disqus is just too immature at this time.

Many of the products and books I review are things I purchased for my own use. Some were given to me specifically for the purpose of reviewing them. I resell or can earn commissions from the sale of some of these items. Links within these pages may be affiliate links that pay me for referring you to them. That's mostly insignificant amounts of money; whenever it is not I have made my relationship plain. I also may own stock in companies mentioned here. If you have any question, please do feel free to contact me.
Specific links that take you to pages that allow you to purchase the item I reviewed are very likely to pay me a commission. Many of the books I review were given to me by the publishers specifically for the purpose of writing a review. These gifts and referral fees do not affect my opinions; I often give bad reviews anyway.
