Hello David,

I'm very interested in a microformat for forum posts, which I think have 
virtually the same requirements as blog posts.  While I haven't thought 
of any significant differences, someone else might.

In my case, I need hooks for Javascript to extract information from 
forum posts in order to support annotation and contextualized copy-paste 
operations for individual posts on a page [1].  In future, I see this 
kind of functionality could be external to a web application (e.g. in a 
browser extension), but for that we need a standard.  Your sample format 
would satisfy me, as it has all the necessary properties (content, 
title, author, date, url), and is very close to the Atom-based format I 
am currently using.
