  1. If you have to promote your comment system, it isn't working.

  2. Not sure if that's necessarily accurate. That said, the process for signing up for the new system was kind of a hassle, and has probably discouraged a lot of (already Discus-having) casual participants.

    For me -- and I imagine many others -- getting set up with the new system involved 1) poking around for a bit to see if I was valued enough to just get ported (sadface, guess not), then 2) a re-access/password reset for a dormant WordPress account and, 3) a signup/password choice for Gravatar account, just so I could 4) have a avatar image that didn't look like an Amish quilt.

    That's a lot of hoops to jump through, if you only want to drop an occasional comment from time to time, and I imagine a bunch of folks just opted out.
