(This is Entry #14 in the Pseudoish Wisdom Series)
Happiness is much sought after but even when you think you have it it disappears.
Take commenting systems for example. 99% of my visitors have their own site. Most use the default WordPress comments. That makes them happy. That is fine for them but if I used it on my site I wouldn’t be happy.
Disqus is pretty good but more than anything it is just widely used. It’s convenient to have a Disqus account because sooner or later you are going to run across a site that has Disqus comments.
Disqus doesn’t make me happy though. I have been on the lookout for a couple of months for a new commenting system.
Even Spot.IM doesn’t make me happy and I’ve only had it for one day. My name with Disqus was Dave but now I don’t have that option. I have to settle for @8Bit_Dave.
Even if Spot.IM wasn’t perfect I would probably find something I wasn’t happy with it about.
So is life. Can we find contentment? Can we learn to be happy? I think so, but not with commenting systems.
One wise Wombie screams from the rooftops, “Happiness is chocolate.”
