IMO we should disable the comment section. Right now we are just asking for spam, and I don't think we want to be in the position of moderating each of these sections. Plus, all of the D tech discussions happen on reddit, HN, or on here, so I don't think we will be missing anything.
The blog will potentially attract people who do not frequent the forums. From that perspective, I think we should give comments a try. I do anticipate getting a good deal of spam, but in my experience, Akismet is pretty effective.
At the moment, I've got it configured to require moderation for anyone's first comment, so even if there is a lot of spam it won't be visible. If comment moderation becomes too much for me to handle, I'll look at other options.
