First, overall I like the way it works, but I'd like to see some improvements (or maybe pointers if I missed a feature).
1. WordPress has a very good feature that allows you to set a pref that requires a commenter to get approval the first time he or she posts. I want that here too.
2. I'd like an option to receive a copy of all comments via email. I think this feature exists, but I haven't been able to find a way to turn it on.
3. Spam hasn't been a problem yet, but it will be. What has disqus done to prepare for this?
4. I want to be able to maintain a copy of all the comments on my server in case I decide to switch later, and I'd like it to be in a format that a competitor can import. At some point, if this feature isn't there, I will switch to one that offers this feature. I don't support data lock-in.
To the disqus people, please don't send me private email, just respond in the comments here. Thanks.
