I have now been svearing and cursing about the Disgus comment stystem. It might work for the bloggers on Blogger. Or at at least for about three blogs, I used to follow. Today I was going to comment on one of them, just to discover that it also had insalled the hated system.
“Lavendel” has explained in great detail how this works (which is fine), and I have also written her personally to ask her to ditch the system.
Of course I can figure out how to make a profile on Disgus, but it’s the same thing as with TV2 blogs, where you also have to create a profile, if you want to comment, like a lot of other sites and dicussion forums. You know what? I can’t be bothered. Apart from that, the system is set up so you have to give your email, and website anyway, so what should be more than enough.
How many login’s do you expect me to keep track of? And don’t you think I have MORE THAN enough as it is? I have the option to log in with Twitter or Facebook. I don’t want to do that either, as my full name is shown then. Thats of no use to me whatsoever. The fact that a lot of people has linked the two is one thing and that’s fine, but I’d like to have some control of when and where I use what.
So dear bloggers, I think it’s totally wrong that you have to either sign up somewhere or use a certain profile to write a comment (either a blog or a discussion fora) and that’s not the idea behind either. It should be something you can do in the spur of the moment without obligations. That’s how I see it anyway. I don’t what to be “conned” into making ANOTHER profile somewhere. So I’m sorry, you’ll have to be without my comments if you have this system. I can’t be bothered. Am I really the only one? And wha’t the idea of following a blog, where I can’t comment? It’s not. I follow one blog on TV2 – a friend’s blog, because she write’s so well, but don’t think she hadn’t had this speach too – and now she’s getting with you guys now as well!
Recently someething bothered my readers and although I thought it as smart, my readers are more important, so I de-installed it. The persons who asked to have it removed haven’t commented since, but that’s another matter. Still I’ve done my part to make their visit here as comfortable and easy as possible. That’s the least I can do. My readers is “my customers”.
I hope other bloggers on Blogger (and others) will think again before they installee this system.
