I am trying out the Disqus comment system for this blog through the WordPress plug-in. I’ve had an account through them for years for my Tumblr. Not sure why I did not bite this bullet years ago. More and more sites I visit use it. It lets commenters authenticate through Disqus, Facebook, Twitter, or Google. The WordPress native comments are spam ridden even with Akismet. Plus the Disqus WordPress plugin is much more user and administrator friendly than Facebook Comments for WordPress.
