Can I disable Reveal for individual pages?
Yes. See Disabling Reveal For Individual Pages in our developer documentation for more instructions. You'll need access to your site's source code so that you can configure the embed code on a per-page-basis.
How do Reveal ads impact page load time?
Page load time isn't impacted by Reveal ads. Disqus is non-blocking and waits to load both the discussion and the ads until all other page elements have loaded.
