Disqus censors internet comments

Disqus has recently introduced a new “toxic” comment filter to censor comments that it does not like. Disqus has partnered with google to create the new toxic comment filter using “machine learning” that is tweaked and refined by programming engineers according to their own subjective opinions of what should or shouldn’t be viewed online.

It is becoming more and more obvious that both Disqus and Google are up to no good. When it comes to disqus censorship there are countless complaints online about how Disqus is censoring legitimate comments for no reason other than to silence someones opinion. Google who is working with Disqus has recently been criticized for removing christian conservative vloggers on YouTube for “hate speech” just because they are christians. The simple truth is that these tech companys aren’t trying to improve the internet but to control it.

These big tech companies will stop at nothing to silence views on the internet that they do not agree with. The real motive for the new filter isn’t about combating online trolls but to simply silence comments. The toxic filter uses machine learning to read the content of your comment and identify the social and political leaning of your comment to decide whether or not it should be published. Disqus can also look at your comment history to find out twhat sites you like to read and post inorder to determine what your political views are and censor you appropriately. This is all done is secret, even the website owner who’s site you are posting on wo’nt know what disqus is doing behind the scenes. This means you could be posting comments in support of an article online but the site owner will never get to read that comment because Disqus decided to remove it.

Disqus also slows down your site… So there really is no point to it!

Despite being an extremely popular WordPress plugin used by many different blogs and news sites, Disqus is in fact one of the worst comment systems that you can use. Disqus is full of ads, if you use the comment system on your site it will forcibly inject ads into your content whether you like it or not. Disqus will also slow down your site. One of the main reasons that people install Disqus is that they think that it will speed up their site however this is not the case at all! Disqus is stored on another web server and when a user requests to load a page with Disqus on the comments need to be fetched from that server making things slower. People also think that Disqus helps to combat spam and troll comments, however, Disqus makes it extremely easy to sign up using multiple accounts and can be easily exploited using automated bots making it rubbish.

  1. Disqus censored my comments which happened to be talking about God – on a Christian website.

    The comment “–” was fine to post using Disqus, but when I tried to post a comment containing “Jesus” or “God”, it was immediately filtered and blocked as “spam”. I sent a message to that Christian site where I had tried to post comments, informing them of this and recommended they delete Disqus from their site and use wordpress comments instead.

  2. Disqus censorship is rife. If it was up to Disqus and you hold “right wing” views or anything for that matter that goes against the fascist liberals then you would never be able to post a comment on the internet again. DISQUSTING.

    A class action lawsuit should be brought against Disqus for censoring people freedom of speech!

    • Yes, disqus is systematically censoring my “toxic” comments about SARS-CoV-2 / COVID-19 dogma. They are also slowing down my access to comments (“disqus is taking more time than usual”), many times even making me impossible to “Load more comments” or directly blocking me to access to them. Some of my comments through disqus are “pending” for more than three months.
      First I thought it could be me or something not dependant of disqus. But I checked it in every case many times. I checked my comments both in my disqus profile and directly at the sites where I posted my comments. Even I tried using diferent VPNs. I always have been polite, respectful and objective in all my comments. I read and respect all official disqus rules about comments.
      Last but not least, I am anything but right wing.

  3. DISGUST truly is a “TOXIC” filter of people’s comments (usually truthful ones) that they oppose. At least they gave themselves the correct description! As Romans chptr 1 forewarned: “evil men who suppress the truth in all unrighteous deception….”

  4. I have been banned by Disqus on all sites using them for comments. Leading up to this most of my posts were marked spam, with Disqus saying they were working on it, but they were not. I’ve come to believe that leftist trolls on news sites using Disqus mark your comments as spam, and Disqus goes merrily along with them. I’m also quite sure those trolls work for Disqus.

  5. Did you know these articles are banned on Google all you get when asking anything about Disqus is links to help center. Google doesn’t list these articles PERIOD I had to use Duck Duck Go.

    Start Page uses the same crap as Google.

    • The same for me. I have to use DuckDuckGo to find sites like this and then to open them with google to post my comment there.
      If Hitler could have Internet, he would hired google.

  6. It’s worse than that. The website moderators on the left of center sites (like theHill) work in tandem with Disqus to make it almost impossible to post. They specify posts as spam or other. That triggers Disqus to verify the posters as real people and not spam or scam. When you follow the steps to verify then they don’t reply.
    After contacting the websites they mostly don’t know it’s going on.
    So you have renegade employees who work with Disqus ( owned by a Clintonista and fired Apple CEO) to stiffle not only free speech but because they have the majority share of the forum market they connect it across all website forums.
    I have first hand experience of this. I called one poster on this as a moderator and he disappeared.
    That’s the next generation of how these totalitarians intend to stop opposition.

  7. Yes they censor comments … I made a joke the other day saying that the only way to deal with mini terrorists would be using a HK MP5 (with photo of it) and my comment remains pending for 3 days ! the biggest problem is that the site is focused to the right and they can’t even imagine the censorship that the system of this junk plugin does !

  8. Disqus has a list of words they don’t want us using. You can usually figure out which word(s) in your post have triggered their system to withhold publishing your comment. Just change that word or words and resubmit your remark. If necessary, use clever spelling to get past their list of taboo words!

    • And after using that cleverly spelled word, Disqus will catch on and block that one too. I’ve been through three iterations of a certain Austrian who goes around collapsing countries economies so he can get even richer.

  9. They seemed to have increased their censorship to blackball people. It now won’t let me comment on anything. Funny how afraid they are of truth slipping through their lies. Its as if they have a lot to hide.

  10. Many so-called ‘right-wing’ websites (such as western journal et al) have joined disqus-google commenting platform, all while speaking against tyranny and censorship.

  11. Yes, disqus is systematically censoring my “toxic” comments about the “SARS-CoV-2 / COVID-19” dogma. I always have been polite, respectful and objective in all my comments. I read and respect always all disqus official rules for comments.
    Google is a mimicry of Gestapo. I have to use DuckDuckGo.

    • Actually DISQUS systematically censored rational conservative voices, destroyed a huge network within the US in doing so and rendered accounts unable to access other DISQUS comment sites freely. Being as I started with them in 2013 myself and many others had fantastic “rep” scores which came from upvotes and some other metrics I don’t pretend to understand. Prior to the format change many conservative accounts were attacked by a systematic bot which deleted all upvotes and even kept deleting until one user I know had negative 500k upvotes, or downvotes as most would call them. This effectively killed the rep scores of many conservatives, the rep score being the key which allows you to comment on other sites. Yes, they did this and still today my account will not accumulate upvotes even though I get 50+ every day I am on.

  12. Not oly can you not mention God, you can’t even give a sideways reference to Him using other words. I tried “The Name in a large ancient Book whose Author is still alive.” Disqus caught that! The devil owns Big Tech

    • Sounds like you have been “profiled” and now anything you say will be marked as spam by Disqus. Disqus and Google have identified you via your IP, cookies and trackers on websites and now are actively censoring you from saying anything at all I am sad to say. It is these devil worshippers that need to be censored not you.

  13. Want to see how well Disqus does “moderating” it’s comments, looks at WSHH comment section. Tons of vulgarity and racism. It’s ironic that they allow such things while deleting dissenting comments. Seen it first hand all of the time.

  14. To begin to change the use of DISQUSS its important to contact the website.
    Problem is, that most website authors think they’re the most enlightened say on whatever the topic is.
    To possibly think, there are people possibly better informed on any topic seems outlandish and just can’t seem to bother that the moderator they’ve chosen is actually a censor and destroys their audience base.
    Mike Adams is a good example of this. He just can’t believe someone could somehow be better informed then he, because, although he often has thoughtful and informed contributors, one can’t opine because he won’t allow himself to be contacted to be informed that his base isn’t allowed to opine freely thinking DISQUSS is filtering out bad apples.
    Important to get to the site author, because DISQUSS is doing alot of damage with their censorship and snickering partnering with Google!

  15. I’ve had several basic, innocuous comments flagged as spam and shadow-banned, but they acknowledge request for review and do nothing for weeks. I will convert to the popular narrative and totally enjoy the treatment our Dear Leaders bestow upon my ungrateful and underserving self. /s

    • Thats just how the site works. Maybe in the future thebosh will enable sign up again so everyone can comment again straight away. But moderation is needed not to censor political views but just to stop people spamming illegal fake pill websites everywhere. You can say what you want on the comments like Gay people are evil… and it won’t get censored.

  16. This is just getting retarded? I know most people are having difficulty understanding that the internet is not as crucial to life as breathing or eating? But, I don’t have that problem-so I will just put you down again and wait (still even longer) for everyone else to eventually wake up! you will become irrelevant I promise, for you are evil and will be recognized as such.

  17. I just tried posting a few comments and noticed that it’s taking far longer to be approved and I still haven’t been approved. Usually it’s less than 5 minutes. I then checked my profile and it says I’ve only got 211 comments and about 9 months worth of comments have now been vaporized.

    Wow. 9 months completely gone. These commy censoring scum are unbelievable.
