CoComment Support for DasBlog
I just checked in CoComment support for DasBlog. If you want it, feel free to get the source for DasBlog via anonymous CVS after it syncs on SourceForge. Otherwise, it'll be out soon in a DasBlog 1.9 release after we get BlogML support finished (started).
CoComment is clever, sure, but it's a screenscraping web-based comment aggregator that is doing the work that FeedDemon and other aggregators SHOULD be doing. SharpReader does a lovely job supporting RSS Comments as does RSS Bandit. They also support the CommentAPI (which does have one BIG problem.) Again, doesn't all of this seem simpler than CoComment's method?
DasBlog supports RSS Comments out of the box, but I think we have a few problems around GUIDs internally...however, only Luke has ever complained to me.
RSS Comments is a great idea that would solve this problem that CoComment aims to solve. I didn't/don't need another Web 2.0 application when there's a perfectly good spec waiting to be implemented. End of rant.

(and yeah, I guess this is comment spam ;))
(check out the testimonials page to get an idea of how well it works)
My walk through CoComment was pedestrian at best. I dislike the interface and would rather leave my comments where they belong - with the original content.
Allowing those comments to then be aggregated is a better solution. Why should das have to support CoComment? With comment aggregation, CoComment could simple support standards.
Just my .02.

don't you just love doing that ;-)
