Disqus… NOT

Disqus commenting broken

FINAL UPDATE 12/19/2013: 

I’ve opted to stop using Disqus and have started using a commenting plugin that allows users to login in with their Facebook or Twitter account.

UPDATED AGAIN  3/11/2012 @12:25 PM CST:

Looks like things are working again (fingers crossed).

UPDATED 3/7/2012 @4:48 PM CST:

Disqus support services cannot troubleshoot the problem as long as I have the plug-in disabled. That means comments will be disabled for a bit to give them a change to help me figure out what’s wrong.

Ooops. I just noticed that the Disqus commenting service is not working on my blog. I don’t know how long comments have been disabled. I’ve reported the problem to Disqus, and until they respond I’ve disabled the plug-in. In the meantime, comments will be handled the old-fashioned way, via WordPress’ comment system.

Apologies for the oversight, and thanks to my favorite stalker for making me aware of the problem.

    We noticed that you have Cloudflare on your site — do you use Rocket Loader by chance? This has historically given third party scripts (like ours) trouble. Let us know!

      Yes, Rocket Loader was set to run automatically. I’ve disabled it for now. Thanks for the tip.

        Great, that should do it — if anything else comes up don’t hesitate to let us know, and you can contact me directly as well.

      What is Cloudflare and Rocket Loader? Never heard of it.

        Cloudflare is a free content distribution management system (CDM), which is supposed to speed up website performance by caching content on multiple servers across the Internet. It also supposedly offers other features to improve security.  You can read more at their website:  cloudflare.com.  Rocket Loader is one of their apps.

        My personal experience with cloudflare has been mixed, but generally more positive than negative… kinda’ like disqus.  🙂
