Ileane Smith's insight:

“I’m a big fan of CommentLuv, and in fact there was a time when I worked closely with Andy Bailey as the Official CommentLuv Ambassador. However, I bit off more than I could chew in that role and eventually I had to step down. Around the same time I decided to stop giving “Luv” to my commenters and ending up trying to explain why I made the decision in this post If You Wait for Perfection You Might Miss the Boat I’m still not sure if people understand what I was going through at the time because I believe my situation was somewhat unique. Let me try to explain, although I still use the plugin, I turned off the LUV back in May 2013, yet I continue to get traffic from people who see my blog listed as a DoFollow commenting blog.  It’s pretty frustrating, because even when I did have the LUV turned on, most of the comment links were not DoFollow. So what started off as a beautiful thing turned into a but pain because I spent hours moderating comments every day. I know there were solutions like adding additional plugins but that was the last thing I wanted to do. All in all I don’t regret using CommentLuv, but I do regret the fact that there are so many bots and spammers out there that will do anything for links that in the end are just a big waste of everyone’s time. It’s such a shame that we have to load our blogs down with plugins just to have a normal conversation with a real person.
 
I never used Disqus comments on my blog so I can’t give you any feedback there. Currently I use the native WordPress commenting system along with Google + comments. As I mentioned in the blog post, it’s not a perfect solution, but it will have to do for now.”  - Ileane Smith.
