New comments system. Discuss.

We're experimenting with a new comments system called Disqus, which is used on many other websites you may be familiar with.

There are a few potential advantages to it, including the ability to vote up your favourite comments and to view comments in order of oldest, newest or most popular. For very long threads, like "Recommended Tradespeople", this is particularly useful, because you can see the newest suggestions first.

"Anonymous" posts are no-longer possible, but you can still post without giving away any personal details, if you are determined to live off-grid. Logging in with Facebook, Twitter or Google+ is a doddle.

If it's popular, we'll keep it. If it's rubbish, we'll drop it. Please let us know what you think?
