It is very common in Poland, too. Practically every news-related website
offers this possibility and generally speaking people tend to be very
critical in their opinions.

Dear Friends,

In Israel "talk-backing" is quite common over the net. That is public
responses to news items, which are published in a newsgroup's "string"
style. I haven't seen this phenomena on news websites (e.g CNN.com ;
nytimes.com) and was wondering:

a) Are "talk backs" practiced in other countries?

b) What is the origin of this activity?

c) Are there references which discuss this form of communication?

Hoping to hear from you…
