  2. Sometimes it is, sometimes it isn't.
    I'm looking forward to the gallery on the old Tonight Show host, Johnny Caron.

    1. They load a lot of ads so we decided to stop using them.

    2. I never saw any ads. Like most people, I use adbocking software so ads aren't an issue for me. I did like the fact that Disqus kept out most spam, and deleted a lot of offensive comments. How are you going to handle those things now?

  4. Hey now I can't hide behind my diqus id and you can get back at me for bitchy comments by directing tons of referrer spam at by blog.

    1. You could set your browser to send a null referrer code. Unless you are using a browser that is designed to send your data to Google whether you want it to or not. *cough, cough, chrome, cough, cough*

  5. Better off getting rid of comments entirely, IMO.
    When was the last time they actually added anything positive?

    1. Excellent effort at proving your point, however you missed another important one entirely: Comment sections attract website traffic without being mandatory reading for people who don't care for them.

    2. I didn't miss that point at all. Yes, comment sections do attract traffic, no doubt about that. My point, because you obviously missed it, was that they attract the wrong kind of traffic. They attract the kind of traffic that drives away legitimate viewers who might otherwise support your site. Your snarky attitude validates my point, so thank you.

  6. So are a "legitimate viewer" or "the wrong kind of traffic"? Because you're still here - using the comment section.

  7. Judging by the new galleries the comments seem to be abandoned anyway, but it probably has more to do with having to do those unbearable picture puzzles than anything else. More trouble than it is worth, at least to me. And I am sure has heck not going to get a Google account!

  8. Designer handbags are expensive, and dropping a few thousand dollars on a single bag new is something that most Vivienne Westwood UK people aren't willing to do. Usually, we want to have more money in the bag than how much the bag cost itself. This is where counterfeit handbags come in not knockoffs that have a similar design as another more expensive bag, but replicas with another brand's logos and signature embellishments. Knockoffs aren't necessarily illegal, while counterfeit Cheap Vivienne Westwood have a much darker history behind them. It is illegal to sell counterfeit or replica bags in the UK.
