Moderator Abuse

Disqus - Moderator Abuse
Back in 2018 the moderator banned my usage on Bossip.com. They were painting a false narrative on an article and I responded with facts. So they banned me and have my account in limbo. It's funny how they are allowed to block you from debunking their false narratives...

Thinks its a geocities site when it's professional server in the 2020s

No customer service Almost all comics cost money to read and tha'ts just the last two weeks No moderation whatsoever so the sites are full of child abuse, misinformation, and threats Hides customer service support page Will ghost anyone who tries to contact them on Twitter If there's an error logging in, it WON'T tell you the error. Have fun guessing. If they DO contact you, they address the wrong issue.

User's recommendation: Pirate comics instead. Pirate sites have better archives and customer service.

I R pissed

I keep receiving emails from DISQUS saying I have been up-voted or someone has commented on my posts and am provided a link to go check it out. When I get there, there are only my old posts and I am unable to get to the post that !the emailed was about. Happens every damn day.

User's recommendation: Don't post your comments on Disqus!

Unfair censorship

I am jay_m_wal. And I see that you removed all of my comments on women in combat. And that is only because you disagree with them. I am going to run campaign to put disqus out of business. Trump 2024.

Another communist California business, run by complete morons!!!!

I started using Disqus on a site that uses them for commenting on movies and TV shows. I went to the site to see if they had communities or chats about things I am interested in and there is no way to search for a community or subject? Literally these *** say they want...

Cons
  • Terrible website for discussions

Disqus is NOT interested in handling any problems that crop up. Their phone number doesn't connect you with help and any attempt by the pissed customer to remedy the situation is ignored.

I have been sent a number of emails from Disqus to confirm my email--this with the actual PROPER email address. They continue to add characters to my email, so I will never get any way to confirm my address. I am STILL not confirmed and never will be. They have no way for us to get help when someone has hacked our account. They have no way to prevent our accounts from being hacked. They don't caredD have have a

User's recommendation: DON'T DEAL WITH DISQUS ON ANY LEVEL.

Hate, threats, danger, etc

Want to read a comic about children or a hedgehog and a bat in a relationship? Be prepared for racism, people promoting child abuse, covid-hoaxers, your marriage insulted, sexism, constant harassment, threats, and possibly even doxing and definitely hatred to fact-checking. This is all over the Comics Kingdom forums hosted by Disqus, which claims to enforce rules they make. The moderation is a broken algorithm that isn't even used half the time and just censors random words used in the comic itself. Facebook has far better protection and rules enforcement.

User's recommendation: Use facebook instead and cancel/boycott disqus.

Constant harassment

Update by user Jan 30, 2021

I tried twitter and facebook. I was lied to about the issues.

Original review posted by user Jan 29, 2021
Threats, covid lies, libel, advocating child abuse, impersonating moderators, hate/threats against/ and pushing rhetoric against fact-checking, racism, sexism, and just plain insults are rampant on Disquis, especially the Comics Kingdom Dsiquis chat (and several other hosts chatbaords). No rules against harassment, threats, trolling, being vulgar, impersonation, etc are ever enforced. Want to see a cute comic about a hedgehog and a bat or silly things kids do? be prepared to find racist claims, covid-hoaxers, people saying it's okay to hit children with belts, and to have your marriage insulted.

User's recommendation: Issue warnings and remove posts.

Problems with my Disqus account.

I received a notice from Disqus that I hadn't verified my e-mail account that they required to be verified. When I accessed my profile page, the information contained there was totally incorrect. I updated my Screen name and email on the Disqus profile page. In spite of the updates I made and saved to my profile, those updates were not reflected in my attempts to complete my verification process. I also updated my email from the one shown on my profile that was not anything like my actual email address. During this period, whenever I clicked on the link to "send me an email" in order to verify my account, the pop-up window I received had an input line to enter my email address but would not let me access the input line for my email input. I tried to complete the verification process numerous times, all without any success. In addition to these user difficulties, after I updated my profile, my full name started showing up the Disqus site. With the propensity of people today to use information like a name as a means to dox that individual if certain parties disagree with the nature of the posts and comments made by an individual. I can't get a verification email to confirm my email account which is holding up the entire process of logging into the Disqus forum. Since Disqus apparently doesn't have any means of contacting a person in their Customer Service group who could let me know what steps they might be able to take or those I need to take to resolve these issues.

Inbox being flooded with emails not addressed to me,

For the past year Discus has flooded my inbox with email not directed to me, ones directed to me only appear in the notification section in the sign up section. I have pleaded for months and nothing changes, what is up with that.

I am unable to cancel.

Update by user Aug 12, 2020

I cannot find a way to contact anyone to cancel my account. Not byphone, link or email.

Original review posted by user Aug 12, 2020
I ordered by mistake and can't find a link to cancel. They all turn into blind alleys. I've been trying for hours and that is too long. No phone, or helpful links. My only recourse is to contact my credit card company.

User's recommendation: Stay Away.
