I tried "post to a URL for review" maybe five years ago, I
think (no blog commenting facility, of course). People just
didn't "get" it. They wouldn't get in the habit of going to
look, and if I had to hound them by email, it wasn't really
much of an improvement.

There's something about the:

* immediacy of email, and
* persistence of email - it just sits there in your Inbox until
you deal with it

that I haven't been able to beat yet. Maybe the blog
method would work better, or maybe in a tech company
(or *young* company) staffed with blog aficionados ...
