Disqus comments widget: on-demand
! Title: Disqus click-to-load
# Copy-paste the static filters below into your "My filters" pane in the
# dashboard.
# Purpose is to load Disqus comments on demand only, so that no connection
# to `disqus.com` occurs by default when you land on a site which uses
# Disqus comments widget.
# Not connecting to Disqus by default is a good thing for such a
# ubiquitous server as `disqus.com`, which can be used to build a
# profile of your browsing habits, even if you have no account with
# Disqus. This also helps web pages containing the Disqus widget to
# load faster.
# These filters will cause a button labeled:
# "Disqus blocked by uBlock Origin: click to unblock" to be embedded
# where Disqus comments would normally be loaded. Click the button
# to force the comments to be loaded.
# Be sure your filter lists are up to date, new resources have been
# added today to make these filters work.

You can also simply use the URL to the raw version of the current Gist as an external filter list:

I've been using this gist as an external subscription for a few weeks, and it works really well. I love having Disqus blocked by default. Is the plan to roll this into one of the other primary lists? Maybe it already has been and I missed it?

That would be the ideal, but I want to think long and hard about how this could be best implemented.

This does not work on the Ubuntu MATE blog:

https://ubuntu-mate.org/blog/ubuntu-mate-yakkety-beta1/

The Disqus comments on the bottom of the page load automatically.

Here is a page where the comments cannot be viewed at all. The button to load them does not show up.

Medium mode users: I had to add * disqus.com * noop to my dynamic rules, otherwise the * * 3p-script block rule would just block the new script element inserted by these rules. (I welcome a better dynamic rule, perhaps one that isn't so permissive!)

And in case anyone else is interested, here is the JavaScript run by the above redirect rule (as of this writing).

@dsedivec,
Is the second rule for the cdn server that I have unneeded:

* disqus.com * noop
* disquscdn.com * noop

TIA

No, I think the second rule is needed, good point. I actually have this more specific rule instead of your second one:

* https://c.disquscdn.com/next/embed script noop

Thanks @Grossdm for pointing that out for everyone. I must not have noticed that I had previously added the disquscdn.com rule prior to using this gist.

Is there any plan for some of these sites to be fixed? I would love to add this to my hosts file for extra privacy but it appears this comment from 2016 hasn't even been fixed.

Edit: For some reason works in Chrome but not Firefox (with all the same lists)

Works for me in Firefox 70.0.1, uBO 1.23.0 default settings.

I'll get a different version of Firefox and see if it's something one of my past extensions did.

Edit: Woks now, good to know something is messed up.
