Silence instead of support
By , for WP 3.9.1

My disqus comments has been hit by a virus posting comments that reappear after being deleted. I've re-installed from back-ups but the same problem still exists.

My site was up-to-date and security measures in place so I don't know how this malware could have been introduced or how to clear it. My support requests have been ignored, maybe they monitor reviews?

One star because I cant give a zero star.

nice, but not good if you're serious about your website
By , for WP 3.9.1

1. social login icons have disappeared from the newest version...Why does this matter? If people see those icons they are 20 times more likely to post a comment...It's easy, simple, clean, and more trustworthy from your users point of view.

2. social login is now a FARCE...you still have to register for a Disqus account...disgusting...A big impediment to users commenting.

3. if you change your comment plugin later, your comments are GONE...that's a whole lot of faith.

4. last, and probably worst, it added 30 http requests and seriously slows down your website...this is one of the cornerstones of good seo/adwords/etc.; a fast loading website...And this plugin kills it...

They could clean all of these things up easily. If they do, I'll give it another try, because it does look nice.

Loads slooooooooooow

I went back to WordPress comments because I got tired of almost always having to wait for Disqus to load. I notice this on other blogs that use Disqus. It is no fun looking at the "D" with the spinny thing in it when the native comment system loads fast and works great.

I like that Disqus improves connectivity between blog sites, but am not willing to pay the speed penalty to get it.

Better comments

Much better than standard WP comments. Also better if you use caching!

ul lists conflict
By , for WP 3.8.3

the plugin seems to be in conflict with the ul lists on my site, where i'm listing all the posts inside a while loop.
I've noticed that Disqus adds automatically javascript content inside the

    between 2 of the
  • items.
    javascript content that is inserted:
    " <script type="text/javascript" style="">
    // <![CDATA[
    var disqus_shortname = 'my site name';
    (function () {
    var nodes = document.getElementsByTagName('span'); " etc.
