I first implemented Disqus here in October of ’07. Despite all the ups and downs, I’m still a Disqus fan.
Glad to see this new feature and I think it’ll go a long way in
curving curbing (sorry, Jangro) some of the spam problems we’ve been seeing pop up:
Disqus Blog » Admin Feature: Require verified email address: “Now, you can also choose to only allow Disqus users with a verified email address. This is ideal for sites that want the most administrative control over the participants of the discussion.”
I would make a Jangro crack (even though he got a tshirt and I didn’t), but I’ll refrain.
