    So I started scraping these before I realized I couldn't use them to do what I wanted to do with them.

    Can anyone else think of a use for them?

    Not all disqus comments are created equal. Some of them write the comments and links as javascript whilst others I've seen do actually create hard links and are therefore spammable.

    Got an easy method to analyze them? What about just blasting away at all 2.3 and seeing what happens?

    You'd probably need to write a scraper to see if there were links to external sites underneath the start of the Disqus comment area on each page (or scrape your list with your harvesting tool of choice and then run a little html parsing script on the saved html files).

    I have no idea how the Disqus anti spam mechanism works so I can't say whether blasting your list would be a good idea or not. However since it's a centralized service I suspect that mass spamming one domain might not be the way to go, but I could be completely wrong. Try it and tell us how it goes. :D

    Aren't you supposed to be logged in to the Disqus system to be able to comment on those?

    As far as I know not everyone of them...but most ya. I guess I could just get the PR on all of them and comment on all the pr7+ I'll dominate Yahoo i guess.

    The part I am stuck on now is getting the PR for 2.3 million urls. I scraped a shit ton of public proxies using the method Maruk provided. I got 89,000 proxies. I need them to pass google obviously to get pr right?

    I'm checking all the proxies now and so far I got 36 with 20% of them tested.

    On the newer versions you are but I've seen several different types of Disqus setups out there in the wild including some that allow anonymous comments. I've never really investigated Disqus further because it's pretty shady spamming a centralized service: a) it's super easy for them to filter your spams or delete all your links at once and b) IMHO they're more likely to come after you if they're a single professional service and they see you dropping millions of links on them.
