Sometimes all I want to do is comment on the title, instead of the whole article. What you are suggesting would limit the amount of freedom I would have in choosing how to interact on this site. A definite no from me.

It probably would be a one time thing.

While I agree with the concept of this for specific subs, I don't think it will actually help to curtail the kind of behavior you want it to. There's nothing there to say that a user couldn't click on the link, close it as soon as it opens, and then continue on to type out their uninformed comment.

Maybe not but it could help a lot of people actually read what needs to be read. Could also make it so mods can hide a code or something in the page so they would have to read the whole thing.

Hiding a code somewhere in the linked page would be a really difficult programming task. You'd have to somehow intercept their browser loading the page and insert extra HTML (and likely CSS/JS/PHP/Ruby/whatever kind of stack they're running) into that page. This would get incredibly difficult if, for example, they have links set to open in a new tab. In Chrome, each tab is a separate process running on the CPU, so the tabs don't really have much cross talk going on.

Anyways, I agree with your first point, it would help a portion of the users to actually read things they want to comment on / contribute to the discussion about. Trying to embed codes into linked pages without the help of those third parties? Not gonna happen...
