Every once in awhile, I come across a Slashdot comment that I really enjoy: something so interesting, insightful, funny, or otherwise notable that I want to save it for future enjoyment or reference. But how to save it?
Right now, you can only bookmark the comment's URL or paste the comment into a document. Either method works, but each has its limitations.
My proposal is that we add a small link in the comment header to mark the comment as a favorite. Ideally, this would be done with a bit of scripting so as not to navigate away from the discussion page. This would only show when you're logged in to Slashdot, like the friend/foe indicator.
Although Slashdot has a "Bookmarks" page, what I am suggesting is different. What I'd like to see is a user profile page, say http://slashdot.org/my/favorites or some such, which would look exactly like the comments page, except it would show your favorite comments, rather than your own. (Yes, Roland, you can mark your own comments as favorites if you want.)
Much of the code is written already, so implementation should be relatively simple. What do you all think? Would you find this feature useful or interesting?
