  1. Thanks Jeffro for the shout out and linkage. The problem is quite annoying, but I’m happy I accidentally bumped into it (but surprised it hadn’t been noticed before) – I found it when I got odd W3C markup validation error, and couldn’t see it on page, then noticed it was only in the page source. I’m happy one spammer messed the markup of the links, so it popped up, lol


  2. @Antti Kokkonen – One more reason why it’s better to perhaps find a few plugins that can fill in the gaps of functionality of the default commenting system. I love the way my commenting system works with the reply, preview, and other options and it’s all home grown. However, I’m curios as to whether IntenseDebate suffers from the same problem considering their tight integration with WordPress. Have you looked into that?


  3. @Jeffro – I only tested IntenseDebate a bit over a year ago, so don’t know how things work with that now.


  4. So basically, using Disquis is just like having your site hacked? ie: a bunch of spam links get injected into your site?

    That seems utterly ridiculous and a hell of a good reason not to touch it … ever!


  5. @Ryan – Assuming the bug has been in for a while, not quite as bad as getting hacked, but in theory links hidden in the page source could hurt sites reputation, so yeah, ridiculous. All in all, for external comment systems, I’m leaning towards IntenseDebate (it being from Automattic and all).
