While Disqus promotes their site as an autonomous chat platform I find it odd that the channels owned by Disqus are moderated by community member volunteers. I understand channels that are created by community members being autonomous, but allowing community members free rein on channels that are supposed to be the base for the company? Very weird.
Why would a company have community member volunteers deciding what comments to delete and what community members to ban? Several community members have asked why they were banned from Disqus owned channels and why their comments were removed when they had not violated ToS, Disqus policy or suggested guidelines. Disqus has not answered any of those questions and instead Disqus has allowed the community member volunteers to delete the questions.
If Disqus is allowing community member volunteers to run Disqus.com then that raises the question as to why they would think other companies would trust them with anything that does not belong to Disqus.
Oddest business practice I have ever encountered for a company to have its most public marketing base handled by people who are not employees.
