I got Disqus working! You’ll notice at the bottom of the page is now a place to leave comments.

Disqus has their privacy policy here. They make money through advertising, which is unfortunate, because that means they’re selling some of your (and my) data to third parties. That’s pretty common these days. :-/

If you don’t want to be tracked, you can enable content blockers in Safari by going to Preferences (⌘-,) > Websites > Content Blockers and toggling the blocker:

Enabling content blockers in Safari

I haven’t found a way to enable this in Firefox. Firefox generally does a pretty good job of blocking harmful things—I guess it doesn’t consider Disqus “harmful”. ¯_(ツ)_/¯ I don’t ever use Chrome, Opera, Brave, or Edge (I know—big surprise on that last one) so I don’t know how to do it there. Let me know if you figure out some privacy measures that you can take with those browsers.

Anyway, I hope if you want to leave a comment, you’ll do it here instead of on Facebook. :) That way I’ll see it!
