In-reply-to » @lyse I'm also on the e-mail wagon here. On I have added a "Comment via email" botten if uses are not logged in. This feature could be extend to other places in the various UIs. Like we already got the "Does not follow your" / "Follow you" on the profile page in yarnd, so this detection could be used to sugget the user to email that person, when mentioning them. WebMentions basically lets effectively “comment” on someone else’s web page (which technically could also be a Twtxt feed) whilst combatting any SPAM problems and NOT exposing your Email address at all. It’s a lot harder to SPAM someone with Webmention(s) really because the way it works require you to essentially SPAM yourself, as it required verification of the “source” mention before the target (recipient) accepts it in the first place.

yarnd fully support WebMention(s) – What it does not (yet) support is automatically creating “ghost users” for the source user of a webmention.
