Readers, we're considering creating a comment archive. Would like your opinions.
You may have noticed that comments can't be searched like the blog content, and it's easy to lose track of which thread is going on where. The goal of archiving comments would be to make them readable and searchable. Probably one week's stories and comments would be lumped together in a bigger story. (Most likely on the sister site.)
My only worry is that archiving like this might discourage some folks from posting. Maybe you like the impermanence of comments.
If you like or hate the idea, please post comments to this story. On ANY OTHER matter, don't post comments to this one, because we'll probably delete the story after getting a read on opinions of this idea.
