We’ve had several posts recently with 100 or more comments. With posts with fewer comments, the threading feature is really nice since it allows you to respond to a specific comment without always quoting it. However, with more comments this seems not to be so helpful and it can make finding the latest comments much more difficult.
Unfortunately if I do decide to disable threaded comments it will get rid of the existing structure on old threads. This will make it more difficult to understand the context of older comments because they will all be placed in line based on the date/time of the comment.
I haven’t made a decision on this but I thought I would let you know I’m considering a change. Feel free to share your own thoughts on this.
Edit Oct 26: I decided to put the change into effect.
