If I will ever pay for a comments service I will use Discuss, because of this nice artwork in the header :)
- My blog and commenting

I`m working on my blog of course, and I don`t expect a lot of readers for all of this thing are mostly interesting for myself.
But because I passionately support open conversations I will do most of my writing publicly even if my thoughts are sometimes random or inaccurate.
I`m just thinking about the importance of commenting and how should the comments be handled. Using Facebook social plugin is cool because it has the strength of provoking conversations, but usually these comments comes from Facebook are mostly short, random thoughts of the moment, and they are not suitable for adding precious information to a post, because just for one thing: google will not index the comments provided by the social plugin.
Other option is using the website`s own backend to store comments. The disadvantage of this method, that adding comments needs some identification from the user which takes time and may discourage them from commenting. I also found some services which provide professional commenting for your site... I don`t know yet how to handle this...
