Open Source Opine-It! is a Firebird extension that allows you to comment on webpages. Right click on your webpage, click Opine-It!, and write a comment about a particular URL. Surprisingly, Whitehouse.gov, RIAA, and SCO don't have any comments.

    Critsuite, Thirdvoice, Annotea... it's been done again and again in the past. Nothing new here; if this iteration catches attention, it'll just be by accident. And a central server is the wrong architecture.

    I find it next to impossible to take seriously anyone who puts an aprostrophe in a plural that is not a possessive and not a contraction. E.g., "An (All Pages) link will appear when there are multiple URL's for the domain."

    They fail it. As you brought them to our attention, you fail it, as well.

    Spelling and punctuation matters to those of us who grew up reading stuff that was actualy written by non-illiterates and then proofread. There are way too many web pages to waste more than a few seconds on one written by the three stooges. -mcgrew

    Of course, as a grammarian, I'm sure you realize that apostrophes were used in the possessive forms of abbreviations for many, many years, and that dropping the apostrophes is a modern innovation, one that appeared at about the same time as dropping the periods. I assume that you simply agree that common usage has changed this, and that the old system is now incorrect, and deserving of the censure that would have attached to the new system perhaps twenty years ago. Obviously, you're not the sort of idiotic half-educated yahoo who would spout off about such a matter without understanding it, nor are you an obnoxious troll who would make a deliberate error in a pedantic flame in the hope of eliciting a response such as mine.

    Nonetheless, I fear I must ask that you yourself proofread more carefully in the future. I'm afraid I can't find a referent for "it" in your second paragraph. Obviously, such an error shows you to be under enormous time pressure, but it's impolite to allow that to affect the rest of us. Please be more careful to respect your readers in the future.

    If you enjoy effusively commenting on all sites you visit you might also like these fine firefox extensions:

    http://stumbleupon.mozdev.org/ (overrun by hostile secular humanists)

    If you want to circuitously share bookmark collections with peers you can use:


    though both are best suited to keep one set of bookmarks amongst multiple personal systems (home, work, laptop, tablet) in lieu of firefox on USB key


    For even more extensions check out
