Delete Disqus Account

I continue with my cleanup of my Internet footprint. This time my target is the removal of my Disqus.com account. You can delete disqus account quite easily actually.

You will want to log into your Disqus.com account. Then you will be take to your “Account” section tab. Now you will want to scroll all the way to the bottom until you see a “Delete Your Disqus Account” button.

When you click on this button you will be taken to another page where you have to select a reason why you are deleting your Disqus account. You will be asked to confirm your account deletion. You have six choices to choose from.

  • I Can’t Get Disqus to Work on This Site
  • I Received Too Many Emails Notifications
  • I Spend Too Much Time Using Disqus
  • I Don’t Find Disqus Useful
  • I Can’t Change my Name
  • Other

Even though you are already logged into your Disqus account, you will be prompted to enter in your Disqus password again in order to delete disqus account. You are then warned that it may take up to 24 hours for your Disqus account to finally get deleted. You will see a blue “Delete my Account” button.

After you click on this blue delete my account button, you will be presented with a final pop up that warns you that you are about to permanently delete disqus account. You can click on “Cancel” or “OK”. When you click on ok, you are taken back to the Disqus.com homepage.

Finally, my Disqus.com account albatross has been defeated. Disqus.com stipulates that your account will become fully deleted after 30 days. Your account becomes immediately deactivated.

None of your Disqus comments will be available to the public during this 30 day grace period. None of your Disqus data is recoverable after the 30 day grace period.

thing you want to do it well if you’re
00:34
not aware Disqus is a free website that
00:39
allows you to chat on other websites so
00:43
as a blogger you could install a Disqus
00:49
plug-in and then users with a Disqus
00:53
account they can comment on your blog
00:55
posts if you’re not aware of it and in
00:58
other web sites all there’s all kinds of
01:00
internet websites that you can use
01:02
discus to to comment okay so you want to
01:06

01:10
obsession with CAPTCHA discus has the
01:13
Google CAPTCHA I fucking hate that

Google CAPTCHA crap I fucking despise it
01:18
I think you can skip it though but some
01:20
but more and more websites are using the
01:23
Google reCAPTCHA and that makes me close
01:29
more and more accounts alright so I’m
01:32
cleaning my internet footprint by
01:35
deleting my Disqus account so once
01:37
you’re logged in you go up to the right
01:39
I will have full abstract written
01:41
instructions in a blog post that will be

linked down in the description box below
01:46
of this YouTube video some people learn
01:48

01:54
top right click on the down arrow next
01:57
to your avatar for your Disqus account
01:59

02:03
completing and then it’ll take you to
02:06

02:14

03:42
and read a more I’m assuming I don’t
03:45
know I’m assuming they disappear off the
03:46
off the internet once you do it your
03:49
account so if you comment in on a
03:51
certain website that I comment me will
03:54
no longer be available it won’t it won’t
03:56
show up ok now there’s five choices it
04:00
well six actually let us know why you’re
04:02
leaving well why do I need to tell you
04:04
fuck you why do I mean everything in the
04:08
system is about you know intelligence
04:10
gathering or you’ve got to follow orders
04:13
or well if you don’t do this I just what
04:16
the fuck here are your options I can’t
04:18
get discussed to work on my site I
04:20
received too many emails notifications
04:23
well you know
04:25
it’s not very good at grammar just
04:27
whatever number three I spend too much
04:30
time using discus number four I don’t
04:33
find discus useful number five I can’t
04:36
change my name and number six other so
04:40
let’s see which one of these
04:43
motherfuckers am I gonna choose
04:44
I don’t yeah me personally I don’t find
04:49
it useful
04:49
fuck it I’m sick now I don’t need
04:51
comment I don’t need to get into a
04:54
dichotomy
04:55
you know like or dislike on some website
04:57
yeah so I’m gonna choose a third one now
05:00
oh now you have to enter in your
05:02
password well I just logged into my
05:04
account okay I entered my password now
05:09
if I it warns you please note that it
05:13
may take up to 24 hours for your account
05:16
to be removed from the system so that’s
05:17
another caveat do not try to log in I’m
05:21
assuming that you don’t want to try to
05:23
log back into your Disqus account
05:25
because it can take up to 24 hours
05:27
I didn’t read their help file I might I
05:29
may include that in my blog post
05:32
I didn’t on this one I was just like
05:34

05:35
my damn Disqus account you know and I
05:38
was like you know what I’m just gonna do
05:39

05:41

05:43
my last livestream I disabled the
05:47
comments and and motherfuckers were
05:49
still able to chat however I didn’t pay
05:52
attention to any of them I never read
05:53
any of them I just you know
05:55
alright so alright 24 hours I’m there’s
05:59
a blue delete my account button I just
06:02
clicked on it and now there’s a pop-up
06:04
that says okay I mean to me it’s obvious
06:07
they don’t want you to delete your
06:09
account they now there’s a pop-up that
06:12
says this will delete your account
06:14
permanently are you sure well yes what
06:18
what I just want to do just for the fuck
06:20
of it you know on a Saturday night I
06:22

06:40
show you all right let me transition and
06:43

06:47
okay so it just took me back to the
06:50
Disqus home page as you can see on
06:52
screen that’s it that’s all it showed
06:56

07:14
link in the description box below that
07:15
will take you to my blog post written up
07:17

Enoch appears calm and I will have full
07:20
instructions written and I will you know
07:22

07:34
you do you want to you know reenable or
07:37

07:43
the delete request may not go through so
07:47
me personally I’m gonna wait I’m gonna
07:51
wait like a month because I don’t want
07:55
to ever be able to log in to this
07:57
goddamn fucking albatross Disqus dot-com
