When Automattic purchased IntenseDebate, I decided to begin adopting that commenting system on various blogs I administer. I even recommended it to some clients. Because I utilize WordPress on my sites, my thinking was that Automattic’s purchase of IntenseDebate meant integration with WordPress would be superior in the long run.
While that still may be the case long-term, Disqus is stretching its lead in commenting system features. In December, they integrated Facebook Connect logins. IntenseDebate has yet to even address that as far as I know. And most recently, Disqus integrated Friendfeed comments related to a particular blog post.
It may be time to admit a previous error in judgement and switch to Disqus.
