Disqus vows to Censor Alt-Right "Toxic Comments" starting with Breitbart

After Facebook, Disqus the biggest company that hosts online comments has clients with content and conversations ranging in nature from mainstream and moderate to fringe and radicals including those on white supremacist, Richard Spencer’s Radix Journal. Those latter sites have put Disqus and its young CEO Daniel Ha under intense pressure from Marxist communists. Disqus says it has new polices and tech to cut down on what it calls “toxic comments” although much of what the company has proposed is still just a set of rough concepts.

In the past, Disqus touted tools for moderators to police their own website discussions, but not all moderators moderate their websites. Breitbart News, for instance, is awash in racist, anti-Semitic, sexist, and sometimes violent comments. Disqus has just announced some new ways it hopes might help rid the web of lousy moderators. Starting today, readers will be able to report directly to Disqus sites that host conversations that they think violate Disqus’s terms of service which for instance, prohibit “intimidation of users.”

While giving up on your Facebook, Twitter or YouTube pages is almost impossible due to possible traffic loss, Disqus on the other hand has no value whatsoever and is simply equal to zero. Websites can just remove Disqus and host comments on their own server so not really sure what Disqus is trying to do here but many will just remove them and they will loose thousands of users.

We have always been FOR free speech and allowed all opinions and thoughts from all peoples of the world. If one’s speech is offensive to another, in today’s twisted world its called “hate speech” but if you ban offensive speech, then there is no free speech. The notion of “hate speech” is in direct conflict with free speech. You can’t have both at the same time, it’s either free speech or censored speech because of “hate speech”.

Giving credence to this moronic hate speech thing has no limits. First it was considered hate speech when someone openly talked about race, then it extended to religion and then we entered the Twilight Zone, sexual preference, women, fatness and even politics. What’s next? Food? Vegans are gonna start calling meat-eaters “hate speech” when they say they love stake?

Now with this said, should we continue to use Disqus or should we switch to our own platform? Please leave a comment below. We will read it and take your opinions into consideration.

    I respectfully stand by my contention that there is no free speech on Disqus. “All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others”. A proclamation by the pigs who control the government in the novel Animal Farm, by George Orwell. You need to look no further than to my blocking on TMZ for my daring to comment on behalf of O.J. Simpson. Even though my comments involved the reiteration of facts within the public domain. While every other post of his personal vilification was allowed to stand. So their claim that only abusive or ad hominem posts are removed proves the contrary to be true.

    For two weeks I have gotten this message on my Disqus/Breitbart feed:

    “This community hasn’t been busy recently. Head back home to find interesting discussions”

    This is a bold-faced LIE. Breitbart is probably one of the most active websites on the Web; they routinely have articles with comments in the multiple thousands.

      Most of them crap. I looked at it during the Oh Bummer era but now they are wishy washy. Judicial Watch is your best source as they are the ones that blew the email scandal suing for information and won. George Soros is being sued since a few months ago and there are petitions to make him a wanted criminal. :)

      Which he is likely causing a lot of (stuff) to happen recently as he is pushing back now that we are biting his feet.

        Thank GOD for Tom Fitton & the folks at Judicial Watch for their tireless FOIA efforts to keep peeling the onion of the PRE-Trump flagrant corruption. Another site worth checking into for extremely indepth analyses (full disclosure: Big Scary right leaning so therefore let’s see: racist, mysogynist, xenophobic, transphobic, homophobic, islamophobic, blah blah blah blah) is theconservativetreehouse.com. It’s like taking a quick refresher course in law college with each article. I am a conservative and LOVE to debate but has anyone here gone to the EXTREMELY intolerant liberal (but i repeat myself) sites and tried to comment as the lone voice in the wilderness? One of the more vicious ones is the DC ‘trade paper’ thehill.com. I stated some objective FACTS in a cogent, dispassionate manner (regarding the department of education i believe) and after a MOB castigated me with ad hominem attacks and DEATH threats, “I” was flagged/timed-out by The Mod (not THEM) for being ‘threatening’. The CONSERVATIVES aren’t the ones refusing to accept the LEGITIMATE presidency of DJT for 18 months and rioting in the streets. Take a long, hard look in the mirror, Entitled Generation.

    You can talk about the JEW here on EU Times as much as you want. These guys never censor comments and they are pretty antijew themselves. They’ve exposed them on multiple occasion unlike faggot Alex Jones. One such example that comes into mind is this one: http://www.eutimes.net/2017/04/the-people-demand-jared-kushner-to-be-fired-trump-will-fire-bannon-instead/

    Dump Disquis. Eventually, every post is marked as “detected as spam” which is patently false. It’s a lousy system, so mark this post quickly.

    Hypocrite. You have to use it or you can’t comment. Sites no longer do their own platforms because they think it’s easier to let (them) handle it. Most likely smartphone idiots that don’t really know anything and have to go thru the growing up process. I was there at one time (not on smartphones though) but today’s young adults are going thru the stupid phase due to media sensation but some are starting to wake up.l

    It’s a slow but steady process. George Soros is being sued out of his pants by Judicial Watch for his evil deeds and is pushing buttons to “make” things happen. Follow the money trail.

    He is getting ready to pay the piper.

    Why does SNOPES ALWAYS show up when you look for threads on a conspiracy or phenomena they always show up spamming the top index with their crap? They debunk everything including themselves.

    If you type Liberal Bias is out of control Snopes will come up with “Is there liberal bias” and go thru a long (scientific) rant that basically says it’s your own bias and to trust their source always. Pffffffffffffffffffft!

    I’ve been censored by Disqus a great many times on conservative sites, and even banned from one by them. I’m absolutely convinced it’s not the sites censoring me, but Disqus and their leftist moderators using Disqus as a leftist censorship backdoor into conservative sites. The left will do anything to silence conservatives, and it’s what you guys are doing, and I know it. I’m not the only one who knows it either. We are writing the sites you censor us on and urging them to dump you!

    I’ve had my posts just vanish and when I try to view others in discussion “Uh Oh, something went wrong!” If you say anything their leftists don’t like you disappear. They even banned me from one site for agreeing with the owner of the site! This evening they vanished my response to a leftist troll who viciously attacked me, shutting me out of the conversation entirely. Disqus is a leftist backdoor into conservative sites for censorship!

  12. EU Times says:

    Martina you are 100% correct. This is a EUTimes moderator you are talking to. I have investigated what you said and we have just discovered that your comment was lost in a black hole. We knew the exact date of your comment because it was synced with our own database yet it was nowhere to be seen inside the Disqus dashboard. it wasn’t under Approved comments, not in Spam and not even in Deleted as we assumed you might have deleted your own comment. And definitely it wasn’t under Pending either. The comment was literally in the abyss, nowhere to be found. I imagine we lost dozens if not even hundreds of comments this way. Disqus most likely took the liberty to delete comments on our website as if it was theirs. As it is already stated clearly in our TOS, we DO NOT CENSOR any kinds of comments whatsoever. Here you have total freedom of speech, you can be a leftist communist, SJW, progressive, nazi, whatever you want. If anyone believes someone is wrong, engage in debate and disprove with arguments. Furthermore at least 300 comments were found not to be SYNCED with our website. After this discovery we have permanently removed Disqus from our website and we will NEVER EVER install any 3rd party apps that would act as a intermediary with our comments.

    Guys Disqus doesn’t bring anything special! If you want to have your avatar photo all you need to do is to register an account on gravatar.com and then when you leave comments on our website or other Gravatar based websites, just use the email you used for your gravatar account. Your avatar image will then be pulled AUTOMATICALLY!

  13. Disqus is Evil says:

    Many people find their comments automatically called spam. In fact if you do, try this experiment. Create a brand new disqus account using a brand new gmail address. Still automatically branded spam from the first posting. Clearly disqus is working with Google to do some backend stuff to brand people they don’t like, no matter what they do. And on disqus blogs many people have complained about this for a long time. Disqus’ only response to that is ‘we’re working on that’. Which is obviously a lie. It’s just their form of shadow banning.
