Thanks for your input, Stefan.
I've added a check that will only allow registered users to be notified
when someone replies to their comments. We also discussed email
confirmation checks on IRC, and I will look into that tomorrow, as well

comments system. We can enable/disable these features at any point in
the future, if it becomes a hassle or any such thing.
