The reasons why I use Disqus
1. Threaded Comments
2. Easier Comment moderation
3. Sync/ Import / Export for Blogger/Wordpress
4. “Like” for posts / comments
5. Social sharing options, Community profiles
6. Automatic email subscription of comments
Disqus is also expected to release a Lite theme for comments which is supposed to load faster (for those who are concerned about the loading time of sites).
Visit my blog from iPhone/Android, you will see the mobile theme + mobile Disqus comments.

Let us wait for the tool to be available for us.
