Since the new Disqus was making so many of us unhappy, it's been removed. Bye!
Currently deployed for your commenting and conversationing pleasure is the standard comments that come with Expression Engine, the CMS that powers the Bitchery HQ. There's a captcha, and there's an RSS feed for following a comment thread if you'd like. There is numbered comments, non-nested, as per many requests. And there's commenting without up or downvoting. Unfortunately, I can't set up a “like” button without abandoning EE entirely, or using Facebook commenting, which I don't want to do. So we can't like each other, though I did like that quiet, “yeah, I agree” click function of the old Disqus “like” button without the accompanying “downvote” that arrived with the new version.
I mean, I like you fine, but you knew that, I hope.
Please let me know if you notice anything bizarre or wackadoodle in the comments. I'm sorry for the temporary offline-age while the changes were being made, but we're back in order now!
