This site really needs comments on the blogs as well.
I read in one of the articles that was posted that a patch had been sent in to allow commenting of this sort, but it wasn't applied because there were other things higher on the todo list. I don't understand, though, what this has to do with not applying it. Is it because something else needs to be done in order for it to work, or because there are security/stability issues involved, or perhaps the person in charge just doesn't have the time for it? I'd actually kind of like to know...
Anyway, the reason that I have found this is that I'd really like to comment on certain people's posts, but I don't want to fill up the recentlog with these replies. Only the people interested in the original post would want to know about any discussion about that post, I would think.
It's also nice to be able to see where the discussion about this post lead. Right now there's no way of knowing who replies to what really. This also makes it harder to look up older comments, I have to remember who replied to me to be able to look it up.
I wouldn't mind having a look at implementing such a thing, but knowing that someone already has and it hasn't been accepted makes me wonder what else can be done. So far I really like it here, and forking over something like this seems rather extreme, so I blog.
