  1. Are you there antiwar? It’s me comrade hermit….

    Testing, testing….

    ….Is this thing on?

    Seriously though, this Disqus crap is f**king ANNOYING!!!!

    Over and out.

    1. Yes, we’re here.

      IntenseDebate has been pretty much unsupported by its maker for a long time, and lately has started acting in a very bizarre manner (e.g. all the comments on a story just disappearing into thin air).

      When I was asked about my opinion on the subject, my response was “change over to Disqus — I moved all MY sites to it long ago because it’s better than IntenseDebate in almost every way I can think of.”

      I guess my opinion was given weight.

      1. I’m a total Luddite. The internet, quite frankly, scares the ever-loving sh*t out of me. My primary reason for involving myself in this terrifying brave new world is to network for my blog,, and my comments don’t appear to have a direct link to my blog anymore, jamming up the primary traffic to my sight.

        I know, I know, there’s Twitter and Facebook but I can’t stand social media. Like I said I’m a Luddite with a blog so my existence by nature is probably damned to be a gigantic pain in the ass.

        I’m sure you guys know what your doing but I’m an agnostic and faith doesn’t come easy to me. What ever. I’ll stick around.

    2. I’m so glad that somebody else out there shares my frustration with Disqus!!

      It is so sluggish (at least on my old PC running XP) — often takes over a minute to come up (once I enable the disqus and disqus cdn javascripts), whereas you would think it shouldn’t take more than a second or two.

      On the positive side, I’m glad that they allow the “comment as guest” option to make it (slightly) harder for people to follow my comments (when I don’t wish them to… obviously sometimes I do).

      (Needless to say I’ve never had a facebook account. The idea of a friend being able to see all of my other friends names and info, and anything I write to any one of them, really strikes me as odd. Not to mention giving the government all sorts of info about me and my friends for free.)

      Hmm… looks like I can’t comment as guest here after all for some reason! Is that a site-specific feature? If so antiwar please turn it on!
