New comments system coming
In the coming days, the comments system will switch from Disqus to native Word Press. This is because:
- Disqus holds up a lot of submitted comments for moderation causing extra work for me and delays for you.
- I’ve learned Disqus collects a lot of data on the users which creates a barrier to entry for the privacy-minded.
The downside is that you’re going to have to create a new Word Press commenting profile, but that’s just a one-time thing. I’m also looking into Word Press Jetpack Comments (or wpDiscuz) upgrade that would allow a few other ways to log in (if it doesn’t slow down the site).
Give it a bit more time, importing the existing comments from Disqus is proving to be buggy and surprisingly heavy on the server.
