Have any of you [also] been dissed by Disqus?
The above comment was submitted by Nathan M. Bickel. It was immediately posted and subsequently deleted by the Disqus website commenting facility. Note the linked article below:

Within a space of between 5 to 10 minutes the Disqus commenting facility on the wapt.com/news/ website dissed this Moralmatters author’s [copied above] comment. I have found this Disqus practice to be [sadly] repetitive. I can only conclude that Nathan M. Bickel has been black listed by this “popular” comment facility that is used by self-identified “Conservative” websites.
How many other people who comment on websites (using the Disqus facility) have been censored and essentially, black-listed? How many umpteen comments have been deleted by Disqus? Why do websites such as wnd.com and the new instigatornews.com website utilize apparent corrupted comment facilities like Disqus? Reportedly, Disqus has at least 75 employees. Have each of those employees been assigned certain names to censor those peoples’ comments?
Furthermore, it is this author’s contention that dependent use by websites on Disqus to filter submitted comments, is only playing into the hands of Internet (free speech) discrimination and those individuals who are heavy handed, bound and determined, to restrict American freedoms.
Please note: This author regards instigatornews.com to be a bold, new and refreshing website, unafraid to report and explore the mainstream media reported news. But as long as it utilizes Disqus, Nathan M. Bickel will not be squeamish to point out to its managing author, editor and the website’s affiliate, that what is being done by Disqus is an apparent unfair discrimination against First Amendment free speech expression. If Disqus claims to promote website viewer discussion – and, it essentially does in the words of its founder and chief CEO (Daniel Ha), then Disqus should be honest and forthright enough to make the needed positive changes and cease the censor of website viewers and people who comment, such as Nathan M. Bickel.
It is this author’s educated opinion and analysis that Disqus is presently a very questionable comment system designed and operated by certain sources to (unfairly) “weed out” First Amendment discussion. Pastor emeritus Nathan M. Bickel has had other comments of his quickly deleted shortly after submitting them. Also, he has found that the “Disqus discriminating and free speech squashing facility” will not allow this author to substantiate [evidence] some of his comments by linking to his own self-authored web articles on given subjects.
My recommendation? I implore those of you using the Disqus comment facility to seriously re-think your dependent use of its facility.
I challenge you who utilize Disqus to discontinue its use and find some fair and honest comment facility, more in keeping with your belief in First Amendment expression. As such, dissing Disqus would be commendable on your behalf to further your Conservative, patriotic free speech First Amendment cause!
Do your own research (and note the informational links below). But, this Moralmatters author is convinced that Disqus is not reputable! It’s not honorable. Using it plays into the hands of those who intend and work toward restricting your American Constitutional freedoms and Amendment freedoms. Why deliberately “shoot yourselves in the feet?” Why play into the hands of the opposition?

DISQUS is Censoring Posts – www.abovetopsecret.com/forum/
………Hello ATS, I had mentioned this in comments over the past several months; so here is a thread.
DISQUS is censoring posts. This service is used across a wide variety of sites, and often displays the message “checking post content” or something to that effect. I doubt that they have enough staff to check every single post, but there IS definitely enough staff to go through and double check the things that do get through.
Posters on CNN have begun to realize this and are talking about it; one user mentions how he feels the post will be deleted in a few hours.
Reddit appears to be doing something similar.
What a great way for corporations to gather information and form public opinion eh?

Please note the recent comment this author submitted on wnd.com – It also was “dissed” by Disqus. It immediately appeared and then disappeared as quickly:
