note for Disqus (rhymes with “disgust”) users

If you have Disqus comments enabled on your tumblr, and odds are you do, then you may want to take a look at a recent change they implemented. If you look at an individual post on your blog, down below the comments, you may see links to other people’s content under a “Recommended For You” header.

First up on mine was a link to celeb puff piece about Jenny McC****y. I assure you, the only time that asshole’s name will appear on any content of mine will be when she’s finally hauled into court and charged with the thousands of counts of murder she so richly deserves for her idiotic, appalling, anti-science jihad against immunization. That will be a day to celebrate. Sadly, we’re not there yet.

So I had an angry. Got ragey. But the good news is, you can turn these off. You can go to the Disqus settings, click on the Discovery tab, and turn it off. Note that they probably set this horror show up for you by default, without your opt-in. While turning it off, I got a whole bunch of “omg I can’t believe you’d do this!” type javascript, but, yeah, Disqus, I’m extremely sure. Fuck you and your asshat link spam fuckery.


Disqus, run by the same kind of sharp minds that run tumblr, apparently changed their notification scheme and you have to verify your email address. I’d give you a link, but it’s (naturally) one of those sites where 700 javascript dialogs pop up and the URL has #! in it, so I can’t. You’ll have to log in at and find your way.

I was wondering why I’d stopped getting emails after disqus comments were posted. TMYK.
