comment Is there a way to allow commenting on a document?
Looking at the 3 answers so far offering 3 completely different directions (social comments, document review comments, metadata / check-in comments), methinks you should elaborate a bit more on what kind of commenting you are looking for

comment How To add an existing content database to a new web app Sharepoint 2010
I'm going to ask the obvious question : Why on earth would you want to have two web sites use the same DB? You should look into extending your existing web app, that will make it accessible through a 2nd URL (and even a 2nd authentication mechanism if you need it)

comment Is Classic/NTLM based authentication a security riskfor Internet facing sites?
FBA with SSL will still use NTLM for authentication, I meant that Kerberos cannot be used on the internet (without a shared, trusted key provider aka Domain Controller or some other setup which would be beyond the abilities of most users)

comment Error while restoring Site Collection to the same server
Is it an old backup? If you applied patches (SP or CU) between the backup and the restore, you will get this error message

Uh. Right. It's late :P But it comes down to just formatting strings as you suggested, not really specific to SharePoint

comment App prison break
I see where you are going, but doesn't it come down to the fact that you shouldn't be installing Apps from unknown/less trustworthy sources on your corporate portal? I don't buy this whole "let your users go get apps by themselves on The Internets! Weee bunnies and unicorns!" Office Store crap

@Ubi Did you set your Search permissions to QueryAsUserIgnoreAppPrincipal as specified in your reference article? If so, the search query should be as the current user
