It's not my recipe and I feel like someone stepped on my toes ;)

Actually, why is it called a "comment box" when it's actually  
"comment text" and it's the option of the designer whether it shows  
up in a box or not?  I would name it after function and use, or the  
actions the user is taking, rather than format or visible cues

or just (:contrib:)
maybe (:add:)(:say:)(:quip:)(:babble:) *heh*

even (:respond:) works

"Commentbox" is what it looks like, not really what it is that the  
author is doing.
