Reverse-pingbacks for comments
|Reported by:||geekdreams||Owned by:||anonymous|
Currently, when you submit a comment on a random blog, the only way of tracking that comment or referring back to it later is to a.) bookmark the comments page, or b.) subscribe to the comments feed (if available).
What I'd like to see is an extension of the Pingback spec, or possibly some new feature (talkbacks? backtalk?), that pings my homepage when I submit a comment on someone else's blog. This would allow me to include a sidebar on my site containing recent comments from all over the web, and would generally help me track conversations directly in Wordpress.
Spam/abuse is an issue, but that's true of pingbacks, trackbacks, and comments as well. Also, the system would only be useful if a majority of Wordpress (and other blogging systems that would presumably follow suit) installations had this feature on by default, so a plugin is not the answer.
Thanks in advance for your consideration and comments.
