Comments on rt.com not loading

Post by mr tribute » 2020-11-21, 21:19

As per the title the comment section on rt.com is missing in Pale Moon.

There is a 4 year old thread on the forum about this, but it is closed. Supposedly the comment section worked at some point.

For example, no comment section:

It's the same issue as FoxNews.com. Same OpenWeb commenting platform.

Off-topic:
The words "open" and "web" in the name of anything should already be giving red flags but both? God. Double whammy. And you really wanted that waterbike.

It has come up before with rt.com too (any site whose comments are managed by spot.im) --
(link to "spot.im" search)


Error console (from page linked in original post):

Systematic destruction of the web and the shitty part of it is? No matter what side you are on (unless you are like us and wholesale reject it in your sites and services) you are contributing to it. So disqus or spot.im or discord or telegram or parler or gab are JUST AS BAD as far as killing the web by employing the same bullshit technology and tactics as their mainstream competitors.

Every alternitive every service even other browsers are all using the same Google Axis technology except us and the handful of others like us. This is how the Internet dies.

Yeah, it's sad. Internet was given to us. Now they are taking it back. Thanks for your replies.

I tried Chrome and Brave for a while, but the UI really sucks. Firefox has a slightly better UI (menu bar), but there is just too much telemetry in Firefox by default. So I tried a locked-down version of Firefox called Librewolf and guess what; it won't display rt.com comments either.

And rt.com puts a lot of cookies on your machine. Everything must turn to shit. Full stop. The great reset, whatever...
