is it possible to get recent 5 comments of a specific disqus-account without using the (aweful) plugin? I want to put them into a content-slider and don't find any bit of API for that!

Not sure why you think the DISQUS api is "awful". I use it myself and it seems to do the trick. I think it also stores comments in Wordpress, so you should be able to get the comments out of Wordpress directly without using the DISQUS API.

use the following code to get what you want.
