Spammers... I bloody hate them.
Over the last few weeks, I've had a rash of spam attacks. The modules I was using to modulate spam (Mollom, Antispam, Botcha) worked very well in blocking the huge portion of it. The downside was a big upsurge in CPU utilization on my webserver and finally getting a 'cease and desist' warning from the website abuse folks over at ICDSOFT. *sigh*
So, rather than continue to fight the evil Spam OverLords I decide to travel a different route and let someone fight the battle for me. Why handle the website comments myself when I can let an third party handle them for me.... after a little investigation I was left thinking "Facebook comments or something else to handle it?"
Facebook integration is cumbersome and my memories of doing it last time were not something I want to play with again. There is not enough hours in the day.
DISQUS is very cool.
Integration of DISQUS in a Druapl7 install is simple. Grab the module from here and plop it into Drupal, then create an APP over on disqus.com for your website and add the APP Keys into your Drupal and VOILA fully managed commenting service.
Instruction from Disqus are easy to walk through:
