Description of the bug
Published articles are like "unix symbolic links" to the original article. They have no content, but they can be refereed like any other article, so a comment may be attached to this "mirror" articles, because it only need to reefer the parent article.
So, the problem is: we have a lot of articles published (like mirrored) in some communities, and the original article and its each mirror has it self independent conversations. There is no real idea of all the public comments in any article page and the readers can't talk with all other readers.
When we are in a mirror article the solution is:
- when commenting: to append the comment to the original article.
- when viewing: to show the comments of the original article.
We will also need a migration to move the current comments on mirrors to its original articles.
