One way may be to enhance the form in a way that each comment div gets
an id marker with  a numeric suffix. This gets increased for each
post, governed by a comment counter PTV. Then you could use a
(:include :) directive with a from= parameter which refers to section
n-x, n is the last section, x the number of sections you wish to

FoxForum uses a mechanism to create section Ids, maybe you can take a
look at the code used in the forum commment form.

sorry this is not a ready&done solution!

to enable user who have read access but no edit rights to post, you
need to set $FoxAuth = 'read'; for the target comment pages, not the
necessarily the form page. You can place the comment form in the Site
group, or a FoxTemplates group, and include it where you want to use
