Pain in the *rse for commenters

I am sick and tired of the requirement that I have to verify I'm not a robot every time I log in. I am shown a bunch of grainy pictures that I am required to determine which photos have a bus in them, a crosswalk, etc. It now takes me 10 minutes to just sign on! Why not a simple CAPTCHA instead of grainy photos. I also couldn't log in with my email address and couldn't find a contact to help since I tried to use the "forgot password" option to email my password but when I enter my address that I just registered on Disqus with it tells me they have no records of this email address. This after entering another CAPTCHA that had me look at grainy pictures to determine which ones had a bus, crosswalk, bridge, etc. It is becoming a pain to even log in! Please find another way to determine if people are not robots and are you intentionally blocking proton mail customers? If so why?

This user often goes by several alias names such as Thoryne, A. E.

Rhose, and now T. R.

Keas online. So far Disqus has done nothing to stop this person.

Relative has given out my personal information on this website and is now trying to hide the fact that she has done so by transferring the site URL and changing the name. She has also removed the comments section entirely in an attempt to deny that the information was ever given out.

Your BAD blocking feature

"Other tools for you: Blocking this user will hide all of their activity and comments from your Disqus content, feeds, and notifications. Would you like to block tonda?" Why do you guys not get that this is a STUPID way to handle blocking? If I block someone, I want it TWO-WAY, not ONE-WAY! Why should they still be able to see and respond to my posts, while I am blind to their responses because I want no interaction with them? WHY ISN'T BLOCKING TWO=WAY?????

Disqus moderators unfairly target conservatives

Disqus moderators utilize a double standard wherein liberals are allowed to use insulting language toward conservatives without negative consequence to their posting privileges, but if conservatives respond in kind they are either suspended or banned. They provide no mechanism to contest their moderators’ actions and unfair treatment of their users.

This site is nothing more than a "{{Redacted}} session" with a bunch of uninformed children. I guess the power they have to "ban" a person (who was thoughtfully having a political dialogue) is what the site really is about.

It is not a mentally stimulating site- just another site that "control" is everything. Don't waste you're time here- the "owners" just want to get their jollies by deciding what is and is not said.

Your enlightened or educated thoughts will not be allowed or appreciated. CIAO!- Many other sites that are FAR better.

Horrible "Channel" Based Home Site

There are frequent violations of the Disqus "Terms of Service" by many commenters, "moderators" and " channel owners" alike on the Disqus home site. Disqus does nothing to enforce their own rules for commenting. In addition, the channel system has been hacked and invaded by outsiders a number of times, leading to a possible loss of personal and private information by those signed up for this service... My own personal observation is that Disqus needs to get their act together. Re: management of the channels, as well as technical issues.

This site has, on multiple occaisions, violated my right as a US Citizen to Freedom of Speech. The so called "moderators" delete or stifle comments they don't agree with. In my opinion, they need to be sued for their alleged violations of the US Constitution.

They did it to me on speaking out against feminist and SJW veiws in a polite but stern way and they banned my account. I created another one expressing their ban and violation and they haven't posted my comment from more than 19 hours ago.

You cannot tell me they do not censor your right of free speech!!! Disqus moderators need to be punished
