Pointing out relevant section of prior art

I need to submit a person's blog entry on a topic in an IDS. The reason for this is that a reader of that blog commented on an idea that is relevant to some dependent claims of the invention at-hand.
 
The blog entry itself is about 3 pages long and then there are 10 pages of comments - the relevant comment buried in there.
 
Do you think I should explicitly point out that one comment?
 
At first I thought I should but then I thought someone may later say that another comment or other portion of the document should have been pointed out as well.
 
And just to put more context to this IDS - this will be the only document in the IDS and probably will be the only IDS for this application. So it is not like I am burying the Examiner with a ton of documents.
 
Thank you in advance for your thoughts on this situation.

Maybe it is possible that the content of the blog is copyrighted.  
 
What about this?

I like your idea of just making the comment as the prior art citation.
 
What does the blog being potentially copyrighted have anything to do with this, though?
 
I IDS copyrighted material all the time.
