Here is a new thing called ClickComments. Instead of having to type comments and add you name,email and webpage as some sites ask you just click the corrosponding button;Cool Stuff, Inspired Me, Entertaining, Write More, Creative, Insightful, Touched My Heart and Great Find.

Its Demonstrated at my blog ... .Go and ClickComment and don't forget to email suggestions for articles to me at xuanjames[put at-character here] and add me to your google talk and/or orkut (James Xuan)

Interesting concept. Maybe the interface could be optimized, like a Digg drop-drop (with more choices than Digg), as the icons are pretty non-self-explanatory so you gotta hover over them anyway and read the text...

As far as I see it, comment systems are really for the readers to add more relevant information. The buttons may lead some readers to click a button and decide that they had already left the equivalent of a comment, losing potential comments you may have gotten.

I'm with Eytan on this one though, I don't see a benefit in encouraging people to leave the equivalent of one word comments. Slippery slope to buttons for 'first!' and 'Me too!' :)

I think StumbleUpon has got this one pretty spot on. Liked or Disliked – combined with a category (and maybe some tags).
