That's the way Disqus rolls ;). If I'm not mistaken, I think they have
the ability to post comments on their site without Javascript, but I
could be mistaken.

Adding a custom Haskellers comment system is a possibility. Here are
my thoughts:

* Can have more graceful degradation.
* Use your Haskellers account for posting comments (big plus here).
* Comments would probably load faster.

* Takes more time.
* Will never have all the features that Disqus has (Reddit reactions,
for instance).
* Might make it more difficult for people without Haskellers accounts
to comment (I don't think I care about this).
