possible move to a hosted commenting system
It’s become pretty clear today that the load of comments and comment spammers are a big problem here. So I’m looking at these options for offloading the heavy lifting to a commenting service: Echo, Disqus, and IntenseDebate.
• threaded commenting
• user profiles you can use across other sites (or not; guest commenting would be enabled)
• connect your comments with Facebook and Twitter
(all of which would be possible if I could manage the upgrade to the newest version of Movable Type, but that’s looking increasingly impossible)
• I’m not certain, but it looks like I wouldn’t be able to set up a way to flag comments by subscribers (though with some more research I might find a way).
So far, I think I like Echo best, but it will cost around $50 per month.
Let me know what experiences you have had — good, bad, or indifferent — with any of these commenting systems.
I need a glass of wine…
