Some other options could be:

- Roll our own commenting system (a quick github search found
- Setup automatic backups of comments using the disqus API,

I can search around and setup a commenting engine server and try to
integrate it into worg like disqus, but unless it's an official server
it's not much better.  If random server someone sets up suddenly
disappears it's the same as disqus changing their business model.  I
guess maybe a server with automatic comment exporting to git or
something?  Or org-maintainer admin access to server?  Both?
