Hi guys,

I've written to Chris Messina but then thought: why I'm not using the
mailing list?

First of all, it's been many years from the last time I've used a
mailing list, so be tolerant with me please :)

I'm working on a REST service as part of our internal framework,
intended to manage user comments for all the contents in our websites.
With a bit of research in microformats.org, I've found that several

need. I think we should use XOXO that is more straightforward. hReview

But the real question is this: none of the proposals (from what I've
read) mentions comment moderation or flagging. Are you working on this
aspect? Maybe you could give me a hint? hReview has tags, which could be
useful for this but I think it that would be a bit of a 'hack', right? 

I'd be really glad to hear any suggestions.

Thank you very much!

Kind regards,
