# Disqus (disqus.com)
> “Disqus, Inc. is a blog comment hosting service for web sites and online communities that uses a networked platform.” – [Source](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Disqus)
## Why is it whitelisted?
To not break the web. Disqus is usually embedded for comments on a site, blocking Disqus would prevent comments from loading.
## Decentralised alternatives
Decentralised, free and open alternatives that adhere closer to the [Ethical Design Manifesto](https://ind.ie/ethical-design):
* [Discourse](http://www.discourse.org) is a free and open forum that can be used for commenting. Hosted and self-hosted versions are available.
## Block rule
Although the content itself is allowed to load, we block cookies to make sure that it does not track people.
