No comments?[edit]

Did the comments get deleted, or has no one done anything but template this page yet? Mathiastck (talk) 15:33, 12 March 2010 (UTC)

Comments? Yes.[edit]

I don't like the idea one bit. There. I said it. Don't everybody start throwing rocks all at once now. Aftermath (68.224.178.2 (talk) 09:51, 26 March 2010 (UTC))

Speaking of Rocks, a few need to be thrown at Google for once again raizing us (in restriction of a word I WILL not use) of the ability to customize our own browsing experience, and reminding US exactly who's "in charge".

Unbalanced opinion[edit]

The article effectively criticises Sidewiki for not being controllable by the site owner, ignoring the view that this may actually be a good thing.

It seems to me the whole point is to enable visitors to a website to post comments, be they positive or negative, as long as they aren't abusive. If webmasters could disable it, it would be the dream of dodgy dealers and those with an agenda to spread lies, among others.

Of course, this is just my view. But there must be arguments out there that we can cite as sources in favour of Sidewiki being this way. -- Smjg (talk) 00:26, 2 September 2010 (UTC)

Alternatives to Sidewiki?[edit]

Are there any good alternatives? The Foresight Institute used to run Crit.org, but that died years ago. The current website is totally unrelated.108.23.147.17 (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 23:30, 2 November 2011 (UTC).
