subjectivity classification corpus?

Dear all,
I am looking for a corpus for subjectivity classification at sentence 
level, i.e. I need a corpus with sentences labeled as objectivity or 
subjectivity.
I have found the corpus of movie reviews for this purpose and the MPQA, 
but I am looking for one based on forums documents or in blogs, do you 
know if there is any?

Best regards,
Octavio.

SECOND CALL FOR PAPERS: IBEREVAL 1st Workshop on Evaluation of Human Language Technologies for modern iberian languages (SEPLN 2010)

*** Apologies for multiple postings ***

==============================================================
IBEREVAL 2010: 1st Workshop on Evaluation of Human Language Technologies
for modern iberian languages 
September 6-7, 2010
In conjunction with SEPLN 2010 Valencia, Spain
Webpage: http://gplsi.dlsi.ua.es/congresos/ibereval10/
==============================================================
SECOND CALL FOR PAPERS
============================================================== 

DESCRIPTION

With the aim of encouraging and promoting the development of Human
Language Technologies (HLT) for modern iberian languages, the goal of
this workshop is creating a discussion forum about different aspects
regarding the evaluation of Natural Language Processing systems,
emphasizing the main problems that modern iberian languages implied:
Spanish, Catalan, Basque, Galician and Portuguese. 

The implementation of this type of systems requires a deep evaluation
and validation of them. In order to validate the HLT, similar evaluation
methods must exists for similar applications, in order to compare them
straightforwardly. 

Besides, most tasks of HLT, as summarization and automatic translation,
does not have a unique valid solution, but more than one can be
accepted. Therefore, the evaluation methods required must be clear and
adjusted to the system goals. 

Following the line of other workshops focused in the evaluation of HLT
systems, this IBEREVAL I workshop is presented as a discussion forum
about the evaluation of systems working with modern iberian languages,
with the aim of discovering the interests and necessities of the
scientific community, dealing with the problems that evaluation implies,
and promoting the creation of evaluation resources and training corpus
for HLT systems working on these languages. 

TOPICS OF INTEREST

This IBEREVAL I workshop will bring together researchers, academic
institutions and companies working on the development of HLT systems and
their evaluation, participating through submissions regarding issues
such as: 

Development of evaluation resources over different HLT modules and
applications:

      * creation of gold-standard corpus for iberian languages (Catalan,
        Basque, Galician, Portuguese and Spanish); Part of Speech
        tagging; syntactic parsing; semantic interpretation; anaphora
        resolution; information retrieval and extraction;
        summarization; machine translation, etc. 
      * Evaluation metrics for the different HLT modules and
        applications. 
      * General modules of evaluation: direct and indirect evaluation. 
      * Development of testing, supervision and evaluation frameworks
        for HLT systems. 
      * Manual, supervised and semi-supervised evaluation. 
      * Creation and development of evaluation standards.

Re: Call for papers

The New York Times has an editorial policy that every acronym must
be written in full at first use.  That is a good practice to follow
with sentences like the following:

 > We welcome papers that examine LSP in written and oral discourse
 > and genres from a wide variety of methodologies and theoretical
 > frameworks, including interdisciplinary research.

The pointer at the end goes to a file that has the full phrase,
Language for Specific Purposes, and cites a reference in 2006
as the source.  Perhaps the in-crowd might know that, but if they
want to attract people from different "theoretical frameworks,"
they might consider the NYT style.

Furthermore, the full announcement doesn't mention the older
term 'sublanguage', which has many more hits on Google,
including a Wikipedia article.  An even older term is
Wittgenstein's 'language games'.

By the way, the first hit on Google Scholar that relates
the acronym LSP to language is to a paper that talks about
Line Spectrum Pairs for speech analysis-synthesis.

    I agree wholeheartedly.  The worst is when the conference name or 
journal title is an abbreviation that is never spelled out!

    Please remember that not everyone comes from your area of 
specialization - but still may have something interesting to say to your 
conference.  I'm often frustrated after taking the time to figure out an 
abbreviation and then finding out that it's something completely 
unrelated to anything I do.  But I don't feel like I can ignore anything 
with an abbreviation I'm not familiar with, because there's still a 
chance it could be relevant.

    If you're forwarding a call that has an abbreviation at the 
beginning, I would appreciate if you could spell out the words for those 
who may not be familiar with them.
