I have an article that has user comments. I would like to have other comments inside each comment as responses:

<article id="com1" itemprop="comment" itemscope="" itemtype="http://schema.org/UserComments">
                <h3>Posted by: <span itemprop="creator">Alexutu Mutu</span></h3>

      <p itemprop="commentText">comment text here.....</p>

                <time itemprop="commentTime" datetime="...">...</time>

    A response is a comment too. Also, you're bloating your code: There's no real reason why you should have to use header, footer or even article, you're making unnecessary lines of code. Commented Nov 25, 2014 at 20:56

A reply to a comment is still classified a comment under the schema standard. Each comment and replies to those comments are still itemprop="comment"
