@manton is it a purposeful choice that manton.org doesn't have a "reply on Micro.blog" link from posts to posts, or just something you haven't built yet?

@gerwitz Partially a technical limitation, because there's currently no good way to get the M.b conversation link. This will change when we roll out putting replies on blogs (discussed a little in the latest Micro Monday).

@manton will displaying replies be optional per post?

@aa I was thinking most people would either want it on for all posts or not at all. What would be an example of wanting per-post settings?

@manton If one were asking explicitly for feedback. “Should I get the new Mac Pro?” “What did folks think about the debate last night?” “Does this haircut make me look sufficiently weird?” 🙃

@manton I think in some instances the comments on a post can take away from the original post’s intent. Not in all cases, but some. As the author, sometimes I will want to show the conversation/comments because the post calls for it or can be enhanced by the visible conversation, other times I will prefer not to...clear as mud? :-)

@manton maybe we can get github.com/microdotb... at the same time? ;-)

@gerwitz It's definitely a related feature. I think both would be solved at the same time.
