Disqus Sucks Dick

I am beyond frustrated with this stupid Disqus commenting system, people. It either prevents me from commenting at all or attempts to reveal my real name. Which I never in a million years authorized it to do or entered into any boxes connected with Disqus. It simply accessed my private data without my permission and is now attempting to make it known to the world.

Recently, it has become fashionable among bloggers to adopt the stupid sucky Disqus as their commenting system. I, for one, have not been able to find a way to publish comments with Disqus in the format I prefer (one which would link to my blog, so that people know who I am and the blog gets promoted.) This means that I will not be commenting on blogs that have adopted this policy any more.

My advice is: if you thinking about adopting Disqus, think again. I can promise that you will lose commenters. One has to be really desperate to post a comment to subject oneself to the aggravation of this nasty system.

  1. Hi Clarissa,

    Sorry to hear you’ve been experiencing problems. I have a couple questions to try and discover the root of your problem.

    What browser are you using?
    How are you logging in to comment?
    Do you get any errors whilst commenting?

    Best,

    Giannii

    • Wow, that was fast. I use Google Chrome. I would like to log in with the WordPress ID associated with this blog. I only managed to comment with Disqus a single time, during which my real name was revealed. Since then, I haven’t been able to leave a comment through it.

      • Hi Clarissa,

        Currently we do not have a login option for wordpress.com and that’s probably why you encountered difficulty with it. We do other other ways to leave a comment with an email, and name; twitter, facebook, google, and many more.

        If you have any other issues just let us know at disqus.com/support

        Thanks,

      • Actually, Disqus’ suckiness is browser-independent. I won’t use it on my blog, because I hate having to deal with it. It has repressed countless potential blog comments.

    • ” there is no real entity at all comparable in power and influence to the American religious wrong”

      – I’ve been trying to hammer this idea in for the entire duration of the course. No, Spain’s PP is not the equivalent of the US Republicans, and Socialists are not the same thing as Obama and the US Democrats. In the last week of class, this got so bad that I even started speaking in English which I never do in class. It was really getting to me. I hope that if I managed to achieve anything is the idea that I repeated until I was blue in the face: The US Left is Spain’s right. And the US Right doesn’t even exist in Spain (save for 2-3 fanatics.)
