Oh, Disqus got acquired by a “create, maintain and monetize customers, using people-based, precision marketing to provide customers with enhanced multi-channel marketing solutions to help them manage the full customer life-cycle” company. Brilliant! /me goes and removes Disqus integration from the blog ;)
@aras Can you export them somehow so the comments are still there?
@baldurk yes, and maybe I’ll get around to put them in somehow. maybe ;)
@aras ewwwwwww. good call dude.
@aras thanks for the heads-up, sounds like I have my work lined up for me for the holiday!
We'd started removing Disqus from our devlog a while ago. It's time to finish the job.
@juulcat nice, looking forward! do you plan for ability to “just use comments”, without the rest of the system?
@aras we could also look into providing it as a service, i.e. run the user db on a centralised GAE system we administer.
@aras If you find a similar system without the crap let me know, I'll need one for my own site as well!
