Hi all,

I have a projct where the customer wants the ability to leave comments on specific pieces of information. Persons, Organizations, Relationships, etc.

I know I can use the comments module for this, however, the user also wants the ability to have "My" comments for specific users and comments that are visible to only specific roles.

In addition, they would like the ability to do something like Twitter and use # tags and @ tags in their comments and have this information provided through a feed to the other users. We can't use Twitter, I've checked. :)

Is there a module that already supports something like this? Or do I need to build this from scratch by extending the comments module - or rolling my own?

Thanks for any info!
