I recently installed this "Discuss this story" feature. It automatically creates a story thread in the forum whenever I post something on the website. I hadn't gone through all the old stories and set up discussion threads, but good old Google has been crawling through my site and found these previously unactivated links. I think it's pretty much found all the old stories, so this won't happen again... I think.
