    Hopefully it could be made into a plugin or something.

  6. Please add DISQUS capability. Many of us are porting over from other platforms that allow this implementation. Thanks!

  7. I doubt this is going to happen after Automattic, the company behind WordPress, recently acquired Intense Debate.
