    Is this the worst idea in the world or what?

    You can embed a forum into your blog as easily as embedding a YouTube video. It will bring your passive blog to life as people do the work for you by adding their content. It's so easy, and they don't even need to register.

    Oh my, I can't imagine anything worse. It's bad enough keeping down the blam (blog spam), even with Akismet's terrific help. And forums are even bigger spam magnets. I wonder how long such a forum would last before it drowned in a deluge of spam.

    Oh yes they do need to register - but the forum can pull their details from their social accounts, rather than having them filling in forms.
