Commento is a platform that you can embed in your website to allow your readers to add comments. It's reasonably fast lightweight. Supports markdown, import from Disqus, voting, automated spam detection, moderation tools, sticky comments, thread locking, OAuth login, single sign-on, and email notifications.

How is this different from Disqus, Facebook Comments, and the rest?

Most other products in this space do not respect your privacy; showing ads is their primary business model and that nearly always comes at the users' cost. Commento has no ads; you're the customer, not the product. While Commento is free software, in order to keep the service sustainable, the hosted cloud version is not offered free of cost. Commento is also orders of magnitude lighter than alternatives.

Why should I care about my readers' privacy?

For starters, your readers value their privacy. Not caring about them is disrespectful and you will end up alienating your audience; they won't come back. Disqus still isn't GDPR-compliant (according to their privacy policy). Disqus adds megabytes to your page size; what happens when a random third-party script that is injected into your website turns malicious?
