it has been weeks and I was not able to change the discuss font color from white to black. I learned that the new disqus is NOT customizable anymore and the system picks a light (black font) or dark (white font) theme by analyzing ur sites CSS. My sites has WHITE background but disqus just picks the dark theme with white font color.
How can I tell disqus to pick the light theme? I have tried modifying my links colors as someone said, disqus takes the link colors to determine the theme but was not successful.
The disqus support did not help out even after 3 email requests!
