Trackbacks as a better commenting system?

Robert Scoble has been having problems with his comments, and said a better way to get a comment to him is to blog about it, and link to him.

I thought about that, and I agree! While it's nice to have the comments all contained in one place for the poster, as a commenter, I find it hard to track where I've made comments in the past. If I blog and link, then I know what I've commented on. And that's good. And as a poster, well, I can follow track back links just as easily as I can read comments. Plus, I'll probably end up at another blog I want to read!

So look for more stuff like this:

Read this, then this, then read on.

Oh yeah, for those who don't have blogs who read this, go ahead and comment. I don't have anything against them, but for me, I'll probably post and link from now on if I have anything important to say.
