    Not possible with Disqus? Sometimes I get semi-spammy comments with links in them. I want to edit them to get rid of the links, leaving the comment. Encourage people to be more real in their commenting, but there seems to be no way to edit, only approve or not?

    If the link in in the comment itself, you can edit the comment as a moderator. There's a couple of ways:

    1. Inline: Find the comment on your page then click "Moderate" and "Edit Comment"
    2. Moderation panel: Expand the comment you want to edit and then click the "Edit" link and remove the URL.

    For posterity, we also have some helpful documentation on edit and related functionalities:

    If they are not spam, but merely include links they sincerely added, why remove the links ?

    If they are spam, the commentators are not going to come back to appreciate your post, their formula-written idiot comments, nor the loss of the links, so just ruthlessly destroy the comments.

    It's a kindness in the end.
