Disqus seems to automatically add a comment count link next to timestamps on Blogger posts.

comment count

I don't want the count to show. It's at the bottom of my posts right next to the disqus iframe which already shows the count.

double comment count

I know how to hide the item by adding css.

.disqus-blogger-comment-link {
  display: none;

What I'm looking for is a way to stop the javascript from loading at all to save on page load speed.

Either via disqus (somehow) or blogger (via the theme editor html) would work, but how?

Go to your Disqus code, There are three script tags, Remove the last one

Remove this

<script type='text/javascript'>
(function() {
var bloggerjs = document.createElement(&#39;script&#39;);
bloggerjs.type = &#39;text/javascript&#39;;
bloggerjs.async = true;
bloggerjs.src = &#39;//&#39; + disqus_shortname + &#39;.disqus.com/blogger_index.js&#39;;
(document.getElementsByTagName(&#39;head&#39;)[0] || document.getElementsByTagName(&#39;body&#39;)[0]).appendChild(bloggerjs);
