I agree with Antonela that Drupal blog comments are not an ideal medium
(putting it nicely) for an interaction like this with other people.
However, we don't have a better platform right now, and this is
important, so I agree trying this as a one-off experiment is worth the
(potential) pain. I can help you with this.
