We took these insights and turned them into a new feature within Disqus. Starting today, publishers on our Disqus Pro and Business plans can now enable an email subscription prompt directly within the Disqus comment embed to allow their most engaged users to seamlessly subscribe.

Posted by Mario Paganini on May 30, 2017

2 new tools to fight trolls, improve discussion quality, and save your team time!

That's where Shadow Banning and Timeouts come into play.
