"Both weblogs and web communities could be dramatically improved if the relationships between different messages in a conversation could be expressed in a standardized way.

stumbled recently across a thoughtful paper by John Sillince [http://staff.abs.aston.ac.uk/jsillince/jsillince.htm] on the prospects and problems of augmenting CMC with explicit argumentation support:
