It is possible that the above method will prevent Micro.blog from collecting any new webmentions and further work will be required in the future to display both those collected by Micro.blog _and_ those collected by this method; see [this discussion](https://​micro.blog/​bix/​7218919#​post_div_7218919) and [this comment from @manton](https://​micro.blog/​manton/​7347634#​post_div_7347634) for more.
