    i read that this comment plugin is no follow by default... as a commenter how can i find out if the blog im using have disqus as no follow?? usually you can view source and see your comments but disqus doesnt allow that.

    There are different versions of disqus in the wild. Some are no follow and some aren't. The latest pure javascript versions don't even show any comments if js is turned off; there are older versions out there that either don't show links at all, or show them as d0follow. The only way to tell is to view source of each page with javascript turned off (or write a bot to do this).

    I wouldn't recommend spamming disqus for this reason, and also since it's a centralized service it's very easy for them to delete all your comments at once. There are more worthy targets to spam out there.

    i dont spam, the comments i leave are on blogs i frequent...however, i drop my anchor and im able to get good traffic flow but its kinda pointless if its nofollow as im looking to up my ranking/serp in google.

    the best thing about disqus comments are the edit function where u can go back later and drop your links.....
