IntenseDebate

Intense Debate is a blog commenting system that supports Typepad, Blogger and Wordpress blogs. The system allows blog owners to track and moderate comments from one place with features like threading, comment analytics, user reputation and comment aggregation.

Intense Debate offers blog readers a powerful networking system to establish reputations, link their profiles, make friends and syndicate their comments. It will create a “mini-blogging platform” that will hold commenters responsible for their comments across various blogs. I’m sure the service will help jumpstart a couple superstar commenter careers.

The company is currently in private beta mode. It is also an incubating startup for TechStars. Competitors include CoComment, JS-Kit, SezWho and Tangler.
