Switching from Mollom to Disqus: The aftermath

Aug 10 2011

A while back, I stated here that I was switching from Drupal comments with Mollom to Disqus comments. Here are my preliminary results. First, AFAIK, I currently have no spam on my blog comments. Second, on an average day, I get about 4-5 spammish comments that I need to delete. Third, overall my legitimate comments are down, too. I get <1 a day. That may just be because I don't write anything inflammatory anymore. More likely, it's due to the higher barrier of entry. The net result: Disqus is far more manageable for me.
