Management is making inquiries regarding the sudden disappearance of disqus. In the meantime, we encourage the wordpress partisans of the commentariat to please enjoy this brief (hopefully?) respite from the inexorable march of progress.

    My timing is impeccable.

    Without disqus, we’re stuck with a nonathalon. And that’s just ridiculous.

      we’re stuck with a nonathalon

      I had that once, but my doctor found the right antibiotics to get rid of it.

      • N__B

        If antibiotics are things that kill germs, is macrobiotic food made up of really big germs?

  • CP

    Well, I can comment on here. And on the thread before this. But on the thread before that, it asks me to login, and when I click to do so, redirects me to… some page that never actually materializes.

    With rue my heart is laden
    For WordPress comments that I wrote
    For a pre-Disqus Eden
    And nym-changes for a joke.

    By click-throughs too tedious for reading
    My comments have been slain.
    The nym-change jokes are sleeping,
    Lost like tears in rain.

      You can get an auroload script for Greasemonkey. It works iff you change the urls on lines 11 and 12 and add a semicolon on line 46. I posted better instructions but spam filter ate them.

      Also, nymfoolery=tears in rain was MY joke. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little “clever” comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit fury all over you and you will drown in it. You’re fucking dead, kiddo.

      • wjts

        Thanks – I’ll look into that (more detailed instructions would be welcome; front pagers, please liberate the relevant comment from moderation).

        And as for the “tears in the rain” joke, stealing from you made a nice change of pace from my usual practice of stealing from Housman.

        • LFC

          Now you have to write a similar take-off, except this time on Housman’s “This is the land of lost content / I see it shining plain/ The [something something — probably mountains] where I went / And shall not go again.”

          On second thought, maybe not…

          • wjts

            Into my heart an air that aches
            From the WordPress era blows:
            What are those half-remembered japes,
            What puns, what jokes are those?

            That is the land of lost comments,
            And this its sad refrain:
            “The way it was, and its contents –
            I’d like it back again.”

            • LFC

              Bravo! well turned.

    • efgoldman

      The nym-change jokes are sleeping,
      Lost like tears in rain.

      This time it’s personal!

  • efgoldman

    please enjoy this brief (hopefully?) respite from the inexorable march of progress.

    Oh, that’s what you call it?

  • Woodrowfan

    I was going to a make a joke about the Thermidorian Reaction, but since that month hasn’t started yet, I have to go with they’ve made a Messidor of Disqus. Meh.

  • The Blogger who had no comments
    Had once as many as we,
    When they said “Some day
    You may lose them all”,
    He replied “Fish-fiddle-de-dee!”
    And his Aunt Jobiska made him drink
    Lavender water tinged with pink,
    For she said, “The World in general’s cromulent
    For bloggers who save their readers’ comments!”

    Inquiry successful. No respite for the WIKKED, BRUH

  • dogboy

    We set sail on this new sea because there is new knowledge to be gained, and new rights to be won, and they must be won
    and used for the progress of all people.

  • AlexSaltzberg

    Can someone just let me know which commentary system is the neoliberal sellout?

    • petesh

      All of them, Katie

  • liberalrob

    My experience of Disqus is that it has a tendency to come and go without notice. Kind of like a cat.

    • Philip

      what did the noble feline race ever do to deserve being compared to disqus

      • N__B

        They know what they did.

  • Linnaeus

    We apologize for the fault in Disqus commenting. Those responsible have just been sacked.

    • wjts

      A Disqüüs once bit my sister…

      • Philip

        Disqüs bîtes can be very nåsty, yøu know

        • Dr. Acula

          How about the møøse?

  • TheBrett

    Now it’s back up, but it’s kind of strange. It turned my wordpress account into a disqus account that’s sort of linked to my main disqus account. That’s all too confusing to me, so I logged out and simply logged back in with my regular disqus account (I’m normally under “Brett”, but that’s taken in Disqus proper).

  • Bri2k

    If this is what the Brave New World is like I think I’ll just stay in tonight.

    P.S. Maybe I’m late to the party, but Discus is working fine. Now that Javelin however…

  • Sahuarita

    Consider this brief respite enjoyed.

  • Philip

    oh lord, Disqus + the LGM theme do…not get along.
