I suggest that when a damn spammer tries to add a comment on one of our beautiful pages, he just receives a bowl of burning oil on his b*lls.
I really liked this idea. I understand the head aches tho so this might not be so easy or even worth doing.
Oh another thing to worry about are those darn spammers. We need to find a way to prevent that which becomes impossible when not locking things down. :(
Oye ve! This might just be one of those features not worth the labor to have.

Confluence normally supports comments, as you may already know. But
our theme just does not display them. We can change the theme to show
the comments on each page. But the license problem still exists.
