I have to admit to being a comment poor blog.Â And I’m remiss in not putting akismet and disqus on here sooner.Â Tonight akisment gave 32,000 plus spam comments a beating.Â They’re gone.Â Room now for your comments and disqus should make things a lot more interesting.
I got turned on to the disqus comment system by Shey Smith on his most excellent blog, http://sheysmith.com and got really motivated to install it when I heard Leo Laporte and Amber Macarthur rolling in the aisles over this on their net@nite podcast broadcast live today.Â It helped push me more that Dave Winer, grandaddy of rss and blogs, is using this as well.
Disqus brings video comments, along with a community of commenters, better comment formatting, and much more.Â And the wordpress plugin install was as easy as could be.
