    I don't recommend Disqus because the comments held in the system aren't SEO friendly. Also, I don't recommend adding any additional plugin to your WP site, which you don't need because it can slow down your site even more, or worse yet, can cause a conflict with another plugin on the site.

    Good post. Also you should be aware that Disqus is banning content creators who's content they don't like from using their commenting system. One very large & popular site recently had this happen. I used to like Disqus and comment fairly often, but this politically correct type of control over a service is unnerving. Just a head's up if you're considering using it.
