    I know that this may be well known by experienced webmasters, so this should be useful for people that just recently started a blog and want to make money with affiliate programs. To get to the point, DON'T USE DISQUS! I know that it may be tempting for a new website to have a easy way to allow comments, but Disqus has resorted to some very shady practices over the years: at first they added affiliate links in comments and now, they will go as far as replacing your own affiliate links to their own. In my experience, I had almost half of website hijacked by these arseholes. Now, I noticed that they have a opt-out option, but the people from the Internet have noticed that this may or may not stop them from stealing data and commissions.

    Yeah, I prefer Wordpress comments, you can allow comments or deny them.
