Have you ever seen a review on RateItAll that was just dying for a rebuttal? Or a few words of praise? Or simply a clarification?
Well you can now comment / reply / rebut any review on the site. Just click through to the review page, and fill in the reply field, and you're good to go:
Over the next week or so, we'll be adding a few tweaks that let folks see which reviews have comments associated with them, as well as a page like the Recent Comments page, that lets folks see where the real conversations are going on.
I like this feature a lot, I think. One of the reasons that I enjoy writing on RateItAll is because of the instant feedback you get. This comment feature will go a long way towards strengthening that feedback factor.
(those that are paying VERY close attention will notice that "not helpful" votes are no longer being displayed on the review pages...the only places they are visible are on the recent comments page and on the reviewer comments page )
