I like Wordpress and will continue using it for some blogs.
But I like Disqus more, and it only works with self-hosted Wordpress, which I'm not willing to do because of the maintenance and spam management.
Which means it's become an important communications tool. I've had 5 people tell me they'd post here on the blog if they could simply use Disqus to do it. Over the top? Well, no, people are busy, and the Disqus comment system is very good and getting better.
So over the weekend I'll make the change.
