RSS Guide and CommentAPI (was Re: content:encoded)
- There seems to be decent support for it. The biggest complaint I've
gotten from people wanting to implement it is lack of Captcha (due to
suspicions of blog spam). It would be fairly easy to extend the
CommentAPI to include a Captcha, but I'm unsure how to popularize such
an extension. I've found that a lot of people assume that readers of
blogs/podcasts/videocasts are on the web at the time they are
reading/listening/watching. For mobile "semi-connected" devices, that
assumption is frequently invalid. I have support in FeederReader for
comments, wfw:comment, and wfw:commentRss ("support" means showing a
link, showing a form with "send" button, and allowing easy
subscription, respectively). Often when I see one, I see all three.
The biggest evidence for creators assuming web connection at the time
of reading are:
Embedded Flash video
Summary Feeds requiring link to full text
CommentAPI not supported
Obviously, I am trying to change these assumptions with FeederReader.
