Let’s face it, if you want more people commenting on your blog it sometimes takes more than a good post to get it out of them. AS s a blogger you want to make it as easy as possible for people to comment on your blog. Even though there are so many spam comments floating around many bloggers have decided not to use captchas, moderating comments manually, because they don’t want to present hurdles to their commentators.
I remember awhile back when Mitch wrote a post having a go at Disqus and other third party commenting systems, and then not so long ago reading a post comparing Commentluv with Disqus, although I don’t think you could call commentluv a commenting system, where the blogger is trying to work out which one to go for.
Personally I don’t like blogs using Disqus and it’s gotten so that I now finding myself scrolling down to see whether the blogger is using Disqus and if they are I don’t even bother reading the post. The only time I will comment on a Disqus blog these days is if I’m reciprocating a comment left on this blog.
I just don’t see the advantage to the commentator for having it installed and if it’s not making life easier for them then as far as I’m concerned it’s a waste of CPU.
Still, that’s just my opinion but I am really interested in what others have to say on the matter and so I’ve decided to run a little poll. It’s a simple yes or no answer but I would really love for you to leave a comment as to why you voted that way. I would also appreciate you Tweeting the post so as to get as many people involved in the poll as possible.
