    "I run a blog on Tumblr that generates a lot of comments. I wanted a way to increase user output and organize the discussions. I turned to IntenseDebate to try this and I was very impressed. It allowed my users to be able to vote on the best comments, set up email alerts, and have profiles that made them stand up. Now my comment section on my blogs are more organized and active than ever."

    "I've often seen that spinning wheel of Disqus on the comment section of many sites. When I tried using it on a forum that I set up, I found that It does the job well enough in posting comments, but it is a little slow when first loading and can sometimes be slow to respond. I might try looking for something better."
