So you'd prefer to have the discussion about a blog post be made
distinct from the blog post itself?  Why not keep them together, also
so that people finding the blog post from someplace other than reddit
(e.g. planet.haskell.org) can find them?

Neither the Haskell reddit nor Stack Overflow are linked to from
haskell.org and there is nothing to indicate that they are "official".
 Also, wasn't it Don that started (and is mainly responsible) for
linking to Haskell articles on reddit?
