Nah, don't overthink it.
The forums are phpBB3 - just mod the forums.
Stick a script in that adds a button to the "Individual XKCD Comic Threads" forum that creates a thread for a specified comic number (defaulting to the latest number).
If you click it and that thread exists, take to the user to the last post in that thread. If you click it and it doesn't exist, create it and open a reply, ready for them to post.
The only real difficulty is the fact that we have up to 500 odd threads created a bunch of different ways, so the thing wouldn't be able to work out what's already been posted with any reliability.
Sounds like a job for a lazy Sunday afternoon, but I don't have those any more.
Clintonio wrote:"DISREGARD THAT I SUCK COCKS" is origionated from 4Chan and the fact that people can post with the same name as any other user (providing they don't have a tripcode). It's not a Bash origionated quote.
I always thought 4chan propagated memes more than created? But whatever - it's already been noted that the quote was present on bash.org before 4chan's existence so I guess that discussion is kinda moot.
