Oh, and On a General Note:

Could somebody, somewhere, somebody who can, in fact, do so, please utterly devastate, destroy and lay in ruins whatever cabal of illiterate fuckwads came up with the commenting system called “Disqus” that is currently spreading like the Black Fucking Plague across the Internets, causing browsers to lock up for minutes on end while trying to figure out how to process the inept code made by those sloped forehead monkeys or, likelier still, trying to find a slot in line for whatever 15th century servers are supposed to handle the load.

Or at least point us in the direction of a plugin that will forever banish to the darkest corners of the bin bucket website with a sign that the fuckheads running it have made a deal with Satan and let that crap in the door.

They should be required to post a warning before you even get to their page saying:

“Close this tab right NOW, for we are a bunch of fuckheads who should have been aborted PRIOR to conception by chopping off our fathers’ John Thomases. With rusty knife.”

Thatisall.

FIRST!! Oh, wait, this isn’t Disqus, is it?

Disqusting also doesn’t like poo poo talk. You get “awaiting moderation” for daring to include words like boob, dingle or phrases like “cock faced cunt muncher”.

I just don’t get it.

I actually like Disqus. It makes commenting across the dozens of places (hundreds when you count in Lucianne links) I read news and opinion much easier with a unified profile, and I’ve never had issues with it slowing down or locking up my browser. I can, however, offer some help for those who don’t like it: Avast Antivirus now comes… Read more »

Firefox, Ghostery will block Disqus, as will NoScript.

I also run WoT, FlashBlock, and AdBlock just to be sure…

I confess. I use Disqus on my site. I’ve had some problems in the past, usually after a wordpuss update, and then I go back to the old system.
Other then that, I rarely have a problem.

And I do use noscript in firefox.

Emperor Misha I says: Don’t get me wrong: I don’t have a problem with the idea of services such as Disqus. What I DO have a problem with is the tendency for providers of such to not establish the framework necessary to support it, leading to endless wait times while sites load. It would also be nice with a “Does… Read more »

Being a Ludite using XP and IE, I have NEVER been able to comment on any site that uses discrap. No idea why; not certain I even care that much. Sure saves me all kinds of time when I’m websurfing, heh, heh, heh.

0007 @ #: Being a Ludite using XP and IE, I have NEVER been able to comment on any site that uses discrap Well, you might consider upgrading IE beyond version 4. Also XP will be taken out of maintenance in a couple of months. After that, you become a hacked, virus ridden threat to the internet. I just upgraded… Read more »

And now, for some topic hijacking. I went shopping today. I received my bonus check and decided to spend a little. I purchased a brand spanking new Ruger SR45. I intend to try it our tomorrow.

@Angry Webmaster: I just got a new recoil spring for my Kimber ProCarry – the old one had worn out after 20 years and 50K or so rounds…Looking forward to a range trip to test it out.

This is true.

shouldn’t that be “never to be sufficiently damned government”?

And while discussing guns, any opinions on Hi-Point pistols?

Da,m, you are correct. See how angry I was at them for having to wait almost 90 minutes to receive permission to exercise my constitutional rights?

Sorry, I have no experience with them.

Hate to diappoint y’all, but in the 13 years I’ve been using XP(and currently IE-8) I’ve actually had two – maybe three – hits that required paying my computer geek to fix. OTOH I am running a commercial version of symantec that is currently used by my former employer on about 15K desk/lap tops… I’m figuring to go to 7… Read more »

0007 – I’m in IT. Been programming since before there WAS a Microsoft. I do NOT use it for anything that requires secure data unless required to by my employer. But much as I loathe Microsoft, Windows 7 is actually pretty good for usability and stability – light years ahead of XP. As far as Microsoft OS’s go, I really… Read more »

I really liked XP, in general – it was their best.

I think Windows peaked a t 3.1. since then they’ve taken out many useful tools with every release.

And, finally back to the original thread, I can only log into Disgust about one time in 4, Wordpuss is about the same.
