Spam control, can't use Askimet etc.
By , for WP 3.6.1

I was excited about Disqus, it seemed to work fine with the latest WordPress version, and my custom Themes even, in spite of the warning at install plugins page, that it wasn't tested with my WP version and hadn't been updated for 9 months.
I would give Disqus 5 stars IF I could actually use it.

I installed it, and I had read on another forum, before installing Disqus, that you could use Askimet with it by enabling Askimet in your settings inside the Disqus admin panel in settings.
Well I looked all day,for hours,till I gave up, through the settings where the wpwiki said it was, ( a site I found after I Googled a long time, only one that said you Could use Askimet with Dusqus) But finally gave up.
I searched on Disqus for Askimet, "Returned no results".

I get lots of spam comments daily, and sometimes thousands of spam comments each day on my oldest website, so I had to remove Disqus because it would take a team of people working 12 hour days to moderate spam.
I was hoping that Disqus would be a great idea for social involvement, too bad I can't use Askimet with Dusqus.
I had askimet turned off a while back and I got over 5500 spams in my database in just a few days, and I Had to do a reinstall to get my Mysql database cleaned out, Bummer.
And on top of that, I almost got blacklisted with Google because of some of the urls in there, BAD sites were showing up even porn on Google when I'd type my site in! So I HAVE to have Askimet on my sites.

Additional supplement to the authors
By , for WP 3.5.2

You guys should offer another option for website owners.

Option:"User can comment using Facebook,Twitter,or Googleplus without signing up for disqus. Offer reliable hosting/backup service for not loosing the comment permanently and such option to website owners for affordable prices.You guys will make good profit from it"

I am very pleased
By , for WP 3.5.2

I knew from my own experience that people would be unlikely to sign up to post a comment on a website if they had to use a login ID specific to that site. Since most of the sites I visit use Disqus, I was pleased to see that they had a plugin for WordPress.

Setting up the Disqus comment plugin was super easy and it doesn't look goofy and out of place. I did have to visit their help docs on their website to work through a few WordPress setup issues like bulk enabling comments on existing posts... but that was fairly minor issue and not one attributed to the plugin itself. There is a bit of a delay for me getting the comment counters to show that there are new comments, but its a pretty small inconvenience considering that the plugin is also writing the comments to my native WordPress commenting system as a backup in case for some reason I move away from using Disqus in the future.

Overrall, I am super pleased. Thanks for provising this plugin.
