Trolls on Disqus calling themselves "Starhub Official ✔️"

internet_troll_on_disqus.png

There were some discussions on Reddit and Hardwarezone about an account or two on the disqus widget embeded on downdetector's page. Let us set the record straight - that's not us!

 

Disqus, at least in my personal opinion, has been plaqued with internet trolls and will continue to be, unless something gets done by the company. 

 

Some tell-tale signs

  • The green tick after the name is actually an emoji ✔️ and not a verification badge. And I can have as many as I want ✔️✔️✔️✔️✔️✔️✔️✔️✔️
  • Account was created on the same day (15 April 2020)
  • Handles are just gibberish: @disqus_OEBaozAebR & @disqus_Yr1VBPoftn (Possibly more)
  • And obviously, we don't talk to our customers this way

Same for the other account we saw

Takeaway here: don't believe everything you see on the internet! Check sources.
