Is there a reason for any semanric to describe a comment, though? does  
anyone benefit from

<article>
<h1>My wonderful Mankini</h1>
There's only one letter difference between "mankini" and "mankind".

<h2> Two comments</h2>

<article>lol</article>
<article>u SUK</article>

</article>

<article>

<h2> Two comments</h2>

<div>lol</div>
<div>u SUK</div>
