I’ve switched from wordpress comment system to disqus. The old comments will hopefully get imported pretty soon.
I remember that it took a few days or maybe even a week to get all of my back-comments ported. But I have no regrets on switching to disqus. It’s a great way to manage the comments (only bummer is I haven’t figured out how to allow trackbacks with it).
Trackbacks eh? Disqus does support trackbacks, though I’m not sure if they are supported in this version yet. I do know that it pulls in reactions from Twitter already if you like that.
