Echochamber.js is a third-party script you can install to add a simple comment form to your blog post or website.

    why not just use disqus?

    Because then there'd be a chance that someone would read the comments. You might have to read those comments. You don't want that.

    When a user submits a comment, echochamber.js will save the comment to the user's LocalStorage, so when they return to the page, they can be confident that their voice is being heard, and feel engaged with your very engaging content. It does not make any HTTP requests. Since LocalStorage is only local, you and your database need not be burdened with other people's opinions.


Anyone else think this is pretty dishonest?

That, and will it not be obvious what's happening when someone uses another computer, clears their cache, or see a blog with tens of thousands of views without any comments on it?
