One thing that many blogs have embraced is the trackback system for blogs to
shout out to other blogs that they’re linking to them or using their information. This is a
wonderful idea, and a similar solution should be applied to comments.
Now, I’m not fully
up to speed with micro-formats and RDF, and such, but such a system should be easy to create and implement.
The first thing we should do is extend RSS to include it. We already have the <comments>
tag, which should obviously link to an RSS feed of comments for the item (using this new system, anyway.)
So we need to add a <postComment> tag, yes?
This tag could go in either the
<channel> element (for Comment-Streams) or in the <item> element (for
news-streams and/or as a direct reply to other comments). Lets break it down something like this:
border-right-style: none; background-color: #f4f4f4; padding-left: 0px; width: 100%; padding-right: 0px;
font-family: 'Courier New', courier, monospace; direction: ltr; border-top-style: none;
color: black; font-size: 8pt; border-left-style: none; overflow: visible; padding-top: 0px" id="codeSnippet">

2: <link>http://www.example.org/postComment.php</ style="color: #800000">link>
3: <input style="color: #ff0000">type="hidden"
4: <input style="color: #ff0000">type="text"
5: <input style="color: #ff0000">type="text"
6: <textarea style="color: #ff0000">name="comment"
7: <captcha style="color: #0000ff">>
8: <link>http://www.example.org/captcha/render.php</ style="color: #800000">link>
9: <desc>How many kittens are in the picture?</ style="color: #800000">desc>
