Similar to how the <activity:object-type> blog entry is a specialization of the "article" object type, we may also want to add a "forum-topic" of "forum-post" or "forum-root" object-type to describe articles that are commentable in Forums. 


A "forum-topic" <activity:object-type> could be a specialization of the "article" object type:



Services that have forums include:


Potential mark-up / attributes

      <id>ID of forum topic</id>
      <title>Title of the forum topic</title>
      <link rel="alternate" type="text/html" href="/URL to forum topic self page" />
      <!--Optional--><summary>Snippet of the forum topic</summary>
      <!--Optional--><content>Full text of the forum topic</content>
      <published>Date / Time the forum topic was posted</published>

I'm wondering if a forum is just another kind of collection — like a set of photos on Flickr that you can comment on...? We certainly can use the ATOM comment threading extension to cover comments posted to forums — that are in reply to an original "article" or "topic".

A question that I have is how this is different from a blog post?
