Load extremely slow, and it doesn't load in mobile devices.

Don't bother.

GPL plugin for a non-GPL cloud based takeover.

I like Disqus as a commenter, and so decide to give them a try on my website. And I like the idea of an improved comment system on my website. But unfortunately, Disqus doesn't provide an improved comment system on my website.

Disqus provides a comment system for their website for visitors of my website. And since I am building my own website, it doesn't make sense to stop building my website, cut it in half, and give the other half to Disqus.

In fact, I find it fairly dishonest to advertise a GPL plugins capabilities when those capabilities aren't met with the plugins code, but through signing up for another service. Especially when the service is designed to load another brand and logos near the page footers, display external advertisements, and load three third-party links into the main web site.

One of the third-party links isn't even a Disqus link, but a link to a market spyware system named scorecardresearch which takes over the web browser of visitors. The third-party site appears to sell this information to their undisclosed clients, which for all anyone knows may be direct competitors. So from one GPL plugin, you give away a large portion of your website to Disqus, and enable some other business to spy on your visitors.

Having been presented with numerous information attacks based on trackers over the past few years, I'm going to have to say, thanks but no thanks.

It works, just that I need

Great Plugin

I use this plugin for my blog which called [ link redacted, please do not post links in the review section ]. This is a really great plugin. One and only disadvantage is, it take some time to load.

Good Enough

It works pretty well. No major complaints, other than the integration from normal WP comments to Disqus can sometimes be glitchy. I still happily use it though.

Good, but could be better

Hi, i really like how it looks like on my site, but i'm afraid of the long term commitment with you guys, i'm starting my site and i expect lots of comments, i don't wanna have to replace it with something else and lose all my comments.. is there a way to have it all on my site? not just an iframe?

Also, would it be possible to remove the branding off of the system if not have it all on my site? because the branding is just, not suitable.

Hit me back, thanks.

Tried it for a day the comment system server went down 3x looks great and nice features but comment system failure on server end cannot have that sorry also slows site down about 2sec load time.

why two logins required?

Just realised that you need to login via the social account and then register an account with Disqus before your comment will go through. Might as well as people for their credit card number before they comment too.
