May I ask about your reason behind the removal of Disqus comments? #37

I noticed that you took down Disqus from your website on May 2 with no reason provided there, and I am curious about that.

The last time I visited your website Disqus was still there, with your front page and "About Me" page flooded with users complaining about or even attacking your Stack Overflow username and whatever your attitudes towards commies in China (BTW, j'aime ton nom sur Stack Overflow parce que je hais aussi les communistes - ils font toutes les mauvais choses aux gens). But since you've stood it for years, it doesn't look like a strong enough reason to remove comments entirely.

I respect if you prefer not to disclose it. All the best.

Hi iBug,

I have added rationale to: https://github.com/cirosantilli/cirosantilli.github.io/tree/fee98be02a34d5d4ccf829c4df89f1a5140881fc#why-i-removed-disqus-comments-from-the-website-in-2019-05-04 and linked from website.

So you speak French is that correct? Cool. I'm Brazilian BTW.

Thanks for the heads up. I'm native Chinese with moderate communication skills in English. I don't speak Romance languages, but I can read and write a little French and a little Spanish (but sorry I don't understand Portuguese without Google Translate). I have set up an "about" page on my website mostly inspired by yours. Muchas gracias. (Note: I tend to be a bit conservative when presenting myself publicly, so I only claimed "read-only" ability on FR, ES and IT, still no PT sorry.)

Dans ce cas, j'écrivais du français intentionellement pour éviter d'être compris par mes pairs, où l'on parle chinois et on a anglais comme un langue secondaire. Ici peu de gens savent ou lisent français (à moins qu'ils utilisent Google Traduction). Cepandant, je fais souvent des erreurs quand j'écris français.
