comment problems commonly include spam, abuse, and other noise that can motivate switching to silo comment embeds, or turning off comments entirely.



Common complaints include:

  • Spam control
  • Moderation becomes overwhelming
  • Inability to surface useful comments amidst noise
  • Moving the conversation to a silo is 'easier' [citation needed]
  • Comments change how the post is interpreted by the reader [1]

POSSE and backfeed

If you POSSE to a silo and then backfeed comments on that POSSE copy, you may experience the same issues that the silo experiences in general, e.g.

  • Kevin Marks 2015-09-11..13 saw abusive tweets show-up on his site that were made in-reply-to the POSSE tweet copies of his indieweb posts about the 2015 XOXO conference and festival


  • Use webmention. For now, spam and the other mentioned problems has not been a problem with purely indieweb webmentions, likely because webmention is not widespread enough to be a target.

Note: if you POSSE and backfeed, especially using a backfeed to webmention service like Bridgy, you may receive spam and other abuse via webmentions from Bridgy from silo posts.

Tests are a way to automatically check ones implementation for edge cases where it may break.

By utilizing tests and test suites when building an implementation one can get an easier understanding of the diversity among other implementations and ensure that one can take it into consideration when building.




  • indiewebify, – is a service that checks how much "indie web" your site is from many different perspectives

Microformat Parsing


  • none yet?


  • checkmention – tests the security of a webmention endpoint
  • node-webmention-testpinger – pings a local webmention endpoint with a variety of test mentions taken from both real world sites and example markup. Aids in ensuring a correct presentation
  • node-webmention-testendpoint – a tool to test your webmention client. Generates a demo-post and a demo-endpoint to test if your client parses the webmention-endpoint correctly and to check if the ping body is transmitted correctly.

practical solution

Created by on September 18

practical solution is often to go with the easiest solution.

The practical solution depends on what problem you’re trying to solve :

  • If it’s how to markup your data on a web page, then microformats is easiest and already widely supported
  • If it's how to notify another website that you’ve linked to it, then webmention
