I know this has probably been asked before but I just have to ask again. Is there any chance that we can get the functionality that other services like wordpress.com, discus, intensedebate where readers and administrators can respond to comments via simply a reply. It would really make this plugin stand out and add a key usability feature. I know that it would be a bit complicated to make sure that every server setup has php access to check email but maybe we can do a check for that? Alternatively maybe a third party email parsing service though that would be costly.
Anyone else have any ideas?
