Remedies for Online Commenting

for improve the commenting environment online. The first two, user-driven moderating and sentiment analysis, are things we've discussed quite a bit (the first one being quite ubiquitous on the web), but the latter two, connoisseurship and searchability, are fairly new territories for us. Variations on these ideas could work well in the context of both Vialogues and mSchool.
