SSDD: Disqus “channels” are back

Disqus Channels are back, but so what?

Disqus has changed ownership, but it appears that the same low-level delicate snowflake employees are still there.

Test post on “new,improved” Disqus channel.

Well, at least I didn’t immediately get the red banner of death. (You’re banned here!)

But, within six minutes — during which time my comment was invisible to everyone but me — It was deleted without comment or explanation.

Within SIX MINUTES my post was gone.

Now, everyone who owns a website with a comment section and active moderation has seen this kind of post where the poster is trying to find out if they can post there, so “Off Topic” removal should not apply.

I AM A WEBSITE OWNER WHO CAN’T USE OFFICIAL DISQUS CHANNELS TO CONTACT THEM.

Why? Because said snowflakes banned me and others for guilt by association with a brilliant system programming whiz known as Dr. Thomas. He proved their claims of “It can’t be done!” were wrong several times. Notably: “You can’t pre-ban someone who’s never posted on your site/channel” and “You can’t find out how many downvotes a comment has — it’s private for a reason.” This latter one, after being shown it COULD be determined — along with who made them — Disqus finally gave access to that info. But the nematodes got their petty revenge by banning him and those associated with him from official channels, then went further and placed unjust universal bans on out accounts, forcing us to create new ones.

This was in keeping with Disqus’ TOS but as soon as the new accounts were noticed, the NEW accounts were banned from Disqus official channels.

The Disqus API has also been changed multiple times to break enhancements created by Dr. Thomas. so they wouldn’t work. This was usually done on weekends when nobody else was in the office.

We’ll have to see. At the moment, I’m not banned on the Breaking News channel — yet.
