More comments on comments
: Some interesting comments on the comments on comments below.
: EvilPundit says, quite rightly, that comments, too, should have permalinks to others can link directly to them. He points us to detailed if chatty instructions here. I’ll need to steady my coding hand with a few shots before undertaking this but it looks righteous.
: Lisa Williams says what we have here is a parallel development alongside the blogosphere: the commentsphere. I’m not sure I agree that it’s separate; comments are part of blogs; they are posts on posts. But to do what she wants, we still have to add the ability to permalink comments. [Anil, et al, add that to your list...]
: UPDATE: This just in from Anil: “As far as comment permalinks go, I’ve got them on my site right now, and I think we’re updating the MT and TypePad templates to include them by default, but we’ve all talked about it internally and are strongly in favor.” As usual, one step ahead….
