Play by Comment Game?

I always get irritated with the lack of complete freedom and start looking for online options.

In my most recent searches, I stumbled upon a blog called Play-By-Comment and I think it would be really interesting to replicate this obviously successful formula for online gaming.  They've been going since 2006, a lot longer than most play-by-post games that fizzle within the first few weeks or months.

Even though our group has barely gamed any recently, we seem to be drifting back towards D&D, so giving Rifts a go for a comment-based game sounds fun considering how rules-light the comment game style appears to be. The old Palladium clunker can take a back seat while the awesome setting comes to the forefront.
