Why has Disqus lost half of its "traffic" in the last 12 months?

Well, it's hard to retain customers, despite offering free services, if you censor valid and legitimate speech. The 'updated' moderating tools at Disqus have created a censorship free for all. FAIL. Websites should allow open reader posting, or not allow that. It's one thing to remove spammers and such, it's quite another to censor legitimate speech you happen to disagree with. Disqus has clearly become a beloved tool of censors, which is why We The People are waking up to this and asking others to boycott Disquss.

My guess would be that Saeed and Tony, Disqus employees, favor the complaints of certain all star moderators that are their pets. They run off anyone that doesn't kowtow to their pets. Their pets are ban happy. The pets have the worse reputations across all of Disqus. Most people avoid the pets for fear of being banned or blacklisted.

Perhaps the way you moderate your channels have something to do with how you are treated?
