Refresh page. Voila!

You do not need scripts from typekit or google analytics.

Edit 1:, not .net… Oops! Thanks, Jeff @codinghorror!

Edit 2: This procedure no longer necessary. Just permit scripts the from on the BBS pages and from on the BB pages, and all will be well.

There is no Disqus on BB that I know of any more. If there is, it’s probably an accident.

Beats me! But the recipe I gave is what I, personally, must do these days in order to use BBS.

Without actually looking or anything I will WAG that the worldssl scripts chain or embed scripts on

@deanputney and @beschizza I think this code can be removed from BB proper:

<!-- Disqus javascript -->
<script type="text/javascript">
    var disqus_shortname = 'boingboing'; // required: replace example with your forum shortname
    /* * * DON'T EDIT BELOW THIS LINE * * */
    (function () {
        var s = document.createElement('script'); s.async = true;
        s.type = 'text/javascript';
        s.src = 'http://' + disqus_shortname + '';
        (document.getElementsByTagName('HEAD')[0] || document.getElementsByTagName('BODY')[0]).appendChild(s);

Yep, that guy needs to go away. Thanks!

Thank you. We’re just about to revise our feature design anyway!
