Improving The CommentAPI And Comment Moderation

archived comments edit

One thing that bothers me about the CommentAPI is that the only response you get is the HTTP status code.

HTTP/1.1 200 OK

However, there are cases where it would be helpful to return more information. For example, when I post a comment on a blog that moderates its comment, the blog should note in the response that comments are moderated, allowing the application to notify the user as such.

Otherwise I might assume that maybe there was a problem in posting the comment and then use the web form within the blog itself to repost the comment, only to discover that comments are moderated.
