Blog remarks used to be simple. If you used WordPress, your remarks used WordPress then, too. But, then your world of blogging got more difficult. Disqus emerged and offered us an alternative to WordPress’s comment system around. Disqus was included with some nice bells and whistles, such as social media integration.
Then Facebook arrived in and furthered their own search of world domination with the Facebook feedback system. This got even easier to incorporate into WordPress blogs with the more recent release of the official Facebook plug-in for WordPress. There’s also the likes of intense debate. Quite simply, options. And with that… confusion.

In other words, options. And with that… misunderstandings. I have been using Disqus on both of my main sites (that one and PCMech) for a little while now. I didn’t always care for it. I ended up going with Disqus because of the simple social mass media integration. I liked the fact that individuals could log in with Facebook and optionally have their comment cross-posted with their Facebook wall structure. I liked the increased potential of commuter connection.
Disqus 2012. It is what the company is phoning it. The new iteration of Disqus. So, they have a working setup… and change it. In essence, they’re attempting to show Disqus itself into some type of public network. They changed the interface somewhat and managed to get less… blog-like. If you’re already an authorized Disqus user and you’re logged in, it’s fine then. But, most of the Internet is NOT logged into Disqus. To them, Disqus will not look like a typical comment system.
The email field isn’t seen until you click the “name” field. And, then even, the language of it is made by the interface seem as if you’re registering for Disqus just to post the comment. And, that might rub a lot of comments the wrong manner. Also, simply clicking a commenter’s name takes you with their Disqus profile – NOT the person’s website. And there’s the discovery package… the set of related articles which appear after the Disqus remarks.
The feature is redundant just because a great deal of blog themes take care of that functionality independently. Some blogs prefer not to have it even. Yet, Disqus is adamant about having that feature because they’ve determined that discovery is important. That’s fine… but I love options. I don’t like to be forced to give Disqus that much real property on my site even if those links point back again to me. But, the most telling thing for me personally is based on observation over time. My comment matters fell noticeably. Whereas I used to see 20-40 comments on a post fairly routinely, today I’m seeing not even half that amount.
