Ability to place comments as a web-part in any sections on the site and the ability to moderate and keep topic current and relevant.
It would be wonderful if we could add comments as a web part instead of simply enabling it. Then we could add it anywhere on the site we desire. Threads can get long but if the ability to set configurations so that the threads are collapsible and the site administrator/moderator can set an expiration date on threads (or not) or could simply delete them if the comments are no longer relevant to the subject matter. I guess then it would be considered a forum, which would be nice. I don't really care what we call it, so long as there is the ability to place it where we need it and be able to moderate it to keep it relevant.
