DISQUS Manages Not To Disqust Me

WordPress, which is easily the number 1 or 2 blog platform on the worldwide web made by Automattic, has announced today that they have acquired the third party comment service IntenseDebate. IntenseDebate competes with such services as SezWho, JS-Kit and Disqus (which we use on Rev2).

It could easily be assumed that by offering IntenseDebate on the WordPress platform, IntenseDebate will quickly become the number one used comment service on the web.  During the development stage, IntenseDebate will head back into Private Beta, but their current users will still be able to use it.

Anyone who uses WordPress has obviously noticed the lack of an interactive commenting system.  Disqus is a great service and makes the commenting much more friendly.  This could be a huge blow to Disqus, as most users of WordPress will most likely use a commenting service built into their blogs without having to install additional code.  One thing Disqus has going for it, is the comments you currently have on your site will not transfer over, so it would seem unlikely current users will switch.

The new commenting features will most likely be released during WordPress 2.7 and will include some of IntenseDebate’s enhanced features automatically, including threaded commenting, and voting. The service will also unveil a plugin that easily integrates the rest of their other features, like aggregated commenting across multiple blogs.
