    i came across this page while researching the backlinks i paid for. Using Chrome i see the comments on the page fine, but here's the interesting thing. Now if you view source the page, and do a search for JonFun, everything below him does not show up on the page. Now i was thinking it was hidden with css, but its not! Javascript maybe, but why?

    Now if you goto the comment by the user jonfun, and do a right click "inspect element", the html below jonfun does not exist in the source.

    What kind of seo tactic is this? im guessing its either custom or a wordpress plugin.

    Saw this in the footer "blog comments powered by Disqus" and the comments have id="dsq- in each tag. This could be a chrome view source thing, i viewed the source with firefox and the comments are there but your url is not within a href tag, seems strange.

    this is either a good trick or just bad coding.
