Editor's review

If you , like me, are appalled at some of the pathetic and pointless comments that crop up on stories you read on the net then Talkino could well be something that interests you. It allows you to partake in meaningful discussions on stories you are interested in without having to deal with some of the more annoying comments that are often posted. Yes it does seem a little elitist, dare I say snobbish even, but...you know what? There really is a place for it.
 
The concept of Talkino was designed to finally solve the problem of getting rid of irrelevant, senseless or otherwise annoying comments that you come across in almost every online discussion. It does this with a unique approach using the "Community guided filtering of unwanted comments" method and allows you to have a meaningful discussion on any website without having to be distracted by annoying and irrelevant commenters - even when you are amongst a large groups of people.  You can comment on any webpage you are interested in regardless of the discussion platform used and even if there isn’t one at all. Comments are then aggregated to a social system where you can engage with other commenters and discover their stories, discussions and new websites. As you can see, Talkino may soon become a significant source of referral traffic and is already beginning to become a marketing tool for online publishers and bloggers. Using the Talkino bookmarklet, you can open a discussion window over any webpage and comment on any particular news, products, blog posts or other webpages regardless of the platform. The difference between this and normal blocking is that here you don’t rank comments but people. Click the plus sign if you like the comments or the minus button if you don't - it's as simple as that. This increases or decreases the rating of the user and they become your 'guide.' That is the core principle of Talkino.
 
Talkino likes to call itself a social discussion network rather than just another discussion platform. It's a community for people who like to have an opinion on things and gets rid of those people who like to make dumb and uninformed comments on stories just because they can. I'm sure you know exactly what i mean. Whats more it links you with like minded individuals and helps you discover more interesting articles, join intelligent (or not so intelligent) discussions, people, websites and ideas. Then you can invite your friends and start to build a more thought provoking social commentary network than the one's around us at the moment. Well it's a nice idea, anyway. Talkino is easy and totally free to use. The world could be a better place with it around...you never know.
