Comment (by mwolfe):

 I just checked on carpentries dot ort blog and I get a Captcha. Solving it
 produces another Captcha then another and another, but I finally got
 logged in.

 Disqus was getting a lot of Spam and put the Captcha on all sites, then
 dropped it for sites not known to be spam sites, so if one clicked 'New
 Exit Node' the Captcha would go away, but their new list of Spam sites
 includes all the Tor exit nodes. It is very tedious filling out Captcha
 after Captcha after Captcha, and sometimes, having gotten past the Captcha
 Tor changes its exit node, so when one tries to log in, one gets yet
 another series of Captchas.

 But at least it's not a total block, if one is willing to fill in enough
 Captchas, one eventually gets logged in to Disqus and can comment.
