New, Improved Pipeburn – Now With Less Spam

Posted on October 19, 2011 by Andrew in Other. 23 comments

As you’ve all probably noticed, we’ve got a bit of a spam problem which has been getting worse of late. Now far be it from us to restrict your access to knock-off Louis Vuitton handbags, soccer cleats, or Viagra we are today taking serious steps to make sure these leaches don’t rain on our parade anymore.

How are we going to do this? By changing the way we all make comments – that’s how. For the next few hours we’ll be changing over to a new system called DISQUS which has become the blogging industry’s new standard for comments. It’ll not only allow us to gradually stop the spamming, but it’s a better commenting system overall and will allow you all to get strangely annoyed about exhaust wrap interact with each other and discuss the latest Pipeburn posts with much more efficiency.

Please bare with us while we try our best to port the old comments over to the new system. Remember, this is new for us as well so it may take a few hours (or maybe more) to get it running properly. Please hold off from making any comments until you see a post from us giving you the all clear below. After that please feel free to try out the new system with a test comment or two. Thanks for your patience!

  • Test

  • Looking good!

  • squgooooole!

  • Al-righty then! Seems like we are good to go – hopefully. Please let us know if you have any issues or see anything that looks a little hokey.

    Apologies to anyone (revdub!) who commented during the changeover. You’re comments have been lost – like tears in rain…

    Please feel free to post all the test comments you want.

    Thanks for yr patience!

  • Good idea, lads! Might make things a little nicer/easier/more refined… I’ll still speak my mind if I see fit, but otherwise, good move!

  • And now we can slag people off directly instead of using @Andrew …blah blah


  • iPhone test.

  • Exactly! Sorry I had to delete yr comments from before, mate. Seems to be sweet now, yes?

  • Btw – if there’s anyone out there who’s got a SquareSpace blog and wants to know how to import comments into Disqus, just drop us a line. Happy to point you in the right direction. 🙂

  • I really like Disqus, great to see it on Pipeburn. Now I have one login for you guys and BikeExif 🙂

  • Dougd

    Nice and simple format, just like I like my bikes!

  • Well…it works. Nice done, Pipeburners. I’ll stay loyal!

    • Ugh

      Yep. Seems to work fine.

      • You don’t really hate pipe wrap, do you?

        • Ugh

          I have next to no opinion of it, really. I just wanted you to feel that someone actually read your anti-spam text. 🙂

  • Would you believe Discus just caught a spam comment IN THIS VERY POST. Words fail me…

  • mmmm… spam
