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.
