Disqus wordpress plugin de-activated yet again

I’m sorry, this is just not working for me, it seems. I’m glad that the disqus guys made the effort to address my issues, but I have a hard time getting used to the way it works:

  • Deleting comments or spam (disqus regards deletions as spam reports, Daniel told me) is more work than in WordPress. If I want to find out if someone is link-spamming me, I first need to go to my site to see the real link, as the link in the email goes to disqus.com. One step too much for me – in the standard WordPress emails, this is immediately visible.
  • I used to be able to reply to people who commented by just replying to the WordPress email. With disqus, thsi reply goes to my blog (which – most of the time – I do not want it to do).
  • My other anti-spam plugins, like http:BL, don’t work too well with disqus.

I’ll follow the developments, but for now it’s back to standard comments.

  1. Sorry to hear that you’re still having issues.

    1) We’re making changes around spam handling that most people will immediately find useful.
    2) User’s emails are located in the notification next to their name
    3) Other anti-spam plugins will not work with Disqus, as we do all spam handling on our end (see #1 :)

    Thanks for the feedback along the way and I hope you’ll be back once the improvements are in.
