Monday, December 21, 2009 Has A New Commenting System!!!

Not that you guys would notice, but by virtue of allowing anonymous comments, this blog gets a sh*tload of spam. I mean, seriously, some days I can literally get 50+ spam comments. This has gotten progressively worse in recent weeks, to the point that many times I can't tell the real comments from the spam when I'm checking my inbox (I have all comments forwarded there) and I had to do something about it.

At the urging of my main man RiPPa, I am going to give this Disqus system a try. It's pretty cool in theory. You don't actually have to "sign up" to leave a comment, but you can drop em' from any sign-in (Blogger, FaceBook, Twitter, OpenID, etc.) which should really alleviate any issues for those of ya'll who comment on the regular. Even better, unlike Blogger's Mom & Pops comment filtering system, this one blocks spam. And let's face it, nobody likes spam.

I'mma try this out for a couple of weeks over the holidays to see if it sticks. In the meantime, let me know if you like the system and think I should keep it, or got back to the old system.

Question: Do you like the new Disqus comment system, or should I go back to the stone age with Blogger comments?
