This is a perfect solution for developer-focused blogs. And as @mudasobwa
pointed out in the comments, also helps filter out unwanted commenters.
I personally switched to commentbox.io/ which is just a cleaner privacy-focused alternative to Disqus. Honestly though, I no longer see a huge need for comments on a self-hosted blog as I prefer to just have those discussions on social media or sites like dev.to.
Thanks for mentioning commentbox.io. I might switch over from disqus to use their service.
There's also commento.io
