That is exactly what I thought, and what I think might not be the desired behaviour for many sites, specially large-scale ones. And that is precisely because of the number of empty topics that would be created as people are simply reading articles. For a site like the one I manage, this would mean millions of empty topics being generated as soon as the integration is in place (as we have millions of articles).
That would be far from ideal.
Would it be possible to only create the topic when someone publishes a comment?
Or, at least when someone clicks on "Write a comment", or something along these lines...
