  • Commenting just got a hell of a lot easier.

We know, we know. You've grown attached to straining your eyes over the distorted, nonsensical text of Captcha to prove you're not a spammy robot. But we care about your retinas, Kansas City. So along with continuing to share all the news that's fit to blog we're also giving you Disqus, a new commenting system.

Read more about how Disqus will change the way you comment after the jump.


Disqus is the same system used on many Tumblr blogs, as well as CNN.com, Mashable, FoxNews.com and more. We've decided to make the switch because Disqus offers some really cool features, including:



Instant gratification


Your comments go live as soon as you hit send, which means bantering back and forth on a story's merits (or perceived faults) will be more like an online chat and less like waiting for your comment to be approved by an archaic spam filter. Disqus also lets you comment via your smartphone, keeping you connected to the conversation where ever you are.



Threaded conversations and gold stars


No more confusion over who you're responding to. In addition to commenting on a post, you can comment on other readers' comments. You'll also be able to share your clever statements on Facebook, Twitter and other social media sites, and "like" comments of others.



Get comments via email


You can subscribe to comments on any blog post and also be notified when someone replies to your comments, instantly, via email. You might never get any real work done again.



Commenter profiles
Be as anonymous or as open as you want to be. Disqus allows you to create a profile for yourself, or log in through Facebook or other sites you already use. Profiles also allow you be a part of various Disqus communities.

So let us know what you think. As always, we look forward to hearing from you in the comments.
