Re-capped the Vouch protocol.

jacky: what if there was a service like webmention.io, vouch.io?

marty: This protocol doesn't really address the content of the Vouch URL. E.g. what if it's just gRegor liked this post, that doesn't mean much vs a more involved comment in-reply-to

Martijn van der Ven: vouch can help surface "probably okay" comments in a moderation UI.

how to manage a list of "domains you trust" for incoming vouch URLs

  • hand-managed list?
  • a "following" list (e.g. from your indie reader or a blogroll)
  • a list of all domains i've sent webmentions to or mentioned on my site?
  • members of a web ring

Jacky Alciné: something like bridgy or granary? e.g. if i follow you on twitter, i will bubble this up.

Marty McGuire asked David Shanske what his blockers were for building this in WP:

  • David Shanske How I trust people is not the same as other people


  • Re-write /vouch without A, B, C so it's clearer to read. Generic people's names?
