It is neither a driver nor a critical component of the sites relative success. I don't think it ever was critical to funding or measurable traffic. Well, except for the most interested participants and attendant observers. And it clearly will be less necessary to monitor or maintain under the Disqus regime. Our time has passed. Except of course for the fact that we're still posting in vBulletin. The clock is ticking.
I get what you mean that Bob has moved on. But what I don't think you get is that he does care about us. I think he is appreciative of our appreciation, hence all the Commenter Klatches with Aryeh and others, even post-changeover. He's a hella busy guy, and it should count as something that he takes the time.

When I think about it, it's like the new commenters at Disqus are puppies who don't have preconceptions about 'how things should be.' We're like loyal old dogs, and Bob cares, but he can't do much more than leave this site open.

Honestly, I think Bob should probably just let us post as much as we want about current diavlogs (without linking from there to here), and little by little, we'll probably be drawn into Disqus.
