 Replying to [comment:9 gk]:
 The problem isn't Tor, it's Disqus. Or actually, the spam filter they
 bought to get rid of the massive amounts of spam they were getting.
 Before, most Tor exit nodes were not listed as spam on the filter, only a
 few were, so changing exit nodes got rid of the Captcha. Then all Tor exit
 nodes were listed as 'possibly spam' and so got a Captcha. Now it appears
 all Tor exit nodes are marked as 'definitely spam' so no Captcha, just the
 notice that this is a spam website that is not allowed to access Disqus. I
 tried changing exit nodes, but every exit node I tried got the 'This
 appears to be a spam site and is not allowed. Try again later.'
 (Not clear why trying again later would work.)
