Abstract: In this paper we present the web application discuss, which provides a novel approach to embed structured discussions into any website. These discussions employ a formal argumentation system in their backend and can be used in addition to or replace existing comment sections. By interacting with the content of the website, we allow to include this content in the discussion. Furthermore, the same discussions can be accessed from multiple websites to bring their audiences together and create a single large discussion. To form a combined audience, it is necessary to use a common backend and we present an exemplary implementation of this scenario.
