  2. I just thought I might inform you that Disqus is now evidently redirecting all links included in user posts and all links on the Disqus user Notification page to go through "redirect.viglink.com" in what I think is a misguided attempt to increase their monetization of user content. (They are also going to start forcing advertisements between user posts starting no later then March 2017 on people that use the "free" version of Disqus unless they pay a "subscription fee" to remove those ads.) In any case the Hosts entry 0.0.0.0 redirect.viglink.com now blocks that redirect.

    Just thought you might want to know if anyone complains that your Hosts file "breaks" the Disqus commenting system.
