As this two are deadly combination for any blog to hit the ranking as both are light weight and super powerful scripts. Many users and bloggers were complaining that Disqus comment plugin don’t work on Thesis or doesn’t respond.  You would be aware that we recently changed our Framework, Theme, SEO plugin and comment plugin and we got a huge response in traffic.
