This is a comment system called babcom, which is a decentralized, anonymous, encrypted, troll-resistant, comment system
that runs atop Freenet. These comments are not stored on this IMC server - they exist in the Freenet cloud, and you
must be running Freenet and Sone to see the comments. Install Freenet and try it out.
