It _really_ pisses me off that my blog, with no link to Facebook, has a Facebook script injected via . That'll probably be the final motivator to pull all my comments into a self hosted system (or maybe )
Commento allows you to embed comments in your website to foster discussion and increase engagement. It's fast, lightweight, privacy-focused, and modern.

There was a replacement that used GH issues but I can't find it ATM :-(

Glad you brought this up. I'm reviving my old WordPress blog, and moving it to Jekyll. The plan was to migrate Disqus to Jekyll too. Not any more!

I've seen it. I'm not 100% sure I like the idea of being reliant on github's issue system remaining in the same state in years to come.

Ditch comments, Remy.

It's something I've given serious thought to, but I always land on keeping comments. I like that I can host discussion on my blog. And I've done it for a long time (a decade).

Having the same issue… but it's hard to get an alternative for static sites :|

I totally get it. I used to feel the same way, and letting go of them was hard. I even still appreciate them on other people's sites! I've found the value of moving conversations to other places, though, has been awesome. Is there another comment vendor that's less... icky?

is a _really_ good solution for static sites (from research). IIRC there's a way to get the comments to be rendered as part of the static build too.

As I tweeted - commento, but there's a few other options too. I also read about a self-hosted S3 JSON based comments, but I can't find the link (annoyingly).

While I have you: would you ever be open to joining me on my podcast (or JS Jabber) to talk about polyfills and why they're so damn awesome?

I noticed actually. Self hosted or on their own package? I'm thinking about doing a quick jump to their hosted offering then when I'm more inclined, setting up my own hosted version.

Sure. Though, I think JS Jabber has gotten in touch a couple of times I've done a pretty amazing job of not replying! Feel free to use caplocks in the subject to remy@leftlogic.com :-D

I used their package, would rather they worried about it for me. And yeah, I did the one click migration. Probably was over within an hour...
