This site actually did use Discus in the past.
But Discus has some performance demerits, which Brian and/or his web developer felt were insurmountable, and were persuaded to migrate over to Spot.IM instead. I think this is currently the third or fourth comment system iteration?
Thanks. I can read website on tablet and iPhone again…
Anything built on PHP is of the devil. When things go wrong, they go WAY wrong. Exempli Gratia, WordPress.
Just kidding, developers, don’t flame me! Actually, the ad issue recently wasn’t a huge problem for me. I suppose it’s because while working for the intenet, I’ve seen far worse. ^_^
Hmmm…. oddly, I can’t reply… Well that reply worked… But I was just kidding with you.
What can I say? I won it in a raffle. It’s not like I’d ever buy one.
I think I found your problem… iPad.
Still having “mobile” viewing problems, very slow, cannot close ads, constant reloading of page being viewed.
who hosts/runs your website,
Well, not always; I often have trouble logging in to Disqus on my IPad. But it IS a widely enough used commenting system to have had most of the bugs worked out.
Glad to see this temporary shut off didn’t deep six the existing comments.
You should use Disqus comments… That system always works on mobile.
