Disqus is slowly transitioning into becoming a forum platform

So far it looks very similar to muut.com. It’s like the uncanny valley between Reddit and Discourse if you ask me. I’m probably just in my old internet-age already and “set in my ways”, but whenever I see stuff like this I immediately scramble for the “flat/compact view” button.

Still looking forward to following this development though.

I think it will be difficult to make the ship turn around and go backwards at Disqus – after adding comments to the bottom of your page for 7 years, to offering a standalone site “channel”. It feels odd to me.

Also more like Kinja than anything else imo.
