Dropping Disqus

I recently discovered that Disqus was including ads, or sponsored links, or whatever you want to call them, in the region of my site where the comment field appears. I realize that accidentally becoming an ad referrer is one of the hazards of relying on software-as-a-service, but that didn’t make me any happier about unwittingly being made into a shill for celebrity gossip sites and content farms. And so – goodbye Disqus comments.
