We’ve officially made the decision to move all of our comments over to Disqus both to mitigate some of the spam we get and to make discussions within the comments a little easier to manage.
You’ll already notice the comment section at the end of each post has changed. For the time being, we’re not going to make anyone sign up to comment. However, if the spam continues to get out of hand, we will consider requiring commenters to sign up first.
It’s really easy to do, and I like Disqus enough to encourage signing up anyway, which you can either do on their signup page or using the little Disqus button above the comments on our site.
Current comments are being migrated over, so if it looks like all of your comments have disappeared don’t worry – they’ll all be back soon.
Have any thoughts on the Disqus system? Let us know what you think.
