Add a simple WYSIWYG editor for blog comments
Allow users that add comments to blogs the ability to add special text or emphasize comments (bold, italics, font size or colors)

Yes! I agree! We have more and more teachers using the blog feature and they grade their students on the comments. As part of the assignment students need to find pictures, videos, or websites to share with the class. As of right now, when a link is pasted into the comments it is not formatted to allow for easy click access. Having a "Rich Text" feature to turn on for the comments would be perfect for these situations! While adding photos/links can currently be accomplished by giving students "Community Editing Rights", this is not a real solution as it does not take place in the comments; students have to sign in with an account and create a new post in order to add these things.

Also, give users the ability to add links, embed videos, etc. Giving them a flex editor would be great!
