I understand that some people believe that threading comments are unintuitive, they confuse the user, and that they are ugly. I like ’em. So this site now supports threading in the comments.
Now – as of right now, you can only reply once, like digg, but it supports two deep. This is only because I haven’t found a more elegant way to allow deeper threading in the code. As soon as I do, I will be allowing deeper threading, probably 3 or 4 comments deep for aesthetic reasons.
The entire thing is done in CSS, unlike OSNews which is hard coded to the pixel with very complex code that really makes me uncomfortable when I see it. This is much nicer. It’s all done via templates, and there are only two – one for comments and one for threads, and this will probably change to one soon too.
