Email commenting

Email commenting

Short, concise description of the idea
I'd like to be able to reply to a comment notification email and have my reply be taken as a comment on that comment.

Full description of the idea
When I get a comment notification email I'd like it to have a "reply to this address" email link that I could send a response to in order to reply to the comment.

The comment should contain a unique ID to stop people replying to comments they weren't notified of and should only accept emails from previously identified addresses (like the current post by email ability).

An ordered list of benefits

  • The ability to join in conversations when users have email access but no web access (as I have on my palm, for instance).
  • An ordered list of problems/issues involved

  • Security.
  • An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation

  • Assign a unique ID for each comment. Combine this with a unique ID for each poster. and authorised email addresses.
  • Tags: comment creation, comments, notifications, § historical
    • Post a new comment
