...on Kinja 1.2. Right now the only reliable way to see all the comments on an blog entry is to go down to the bottom and click "all replies by time". However, these comments are not grouped by thread. They are, as it says, just grouped by time, in chronological order and appear to resemble what the Gawker commenting system looked like before Kinja even came into being.
Please note, in my screenshot below, that Irish Sodabread Snacktastic is the first reply to the article and Jane, the next one down, while it might be easy to think she is replying to Irish, is actually starting a new thread. Notice her comment is addressed to the author, Nappyheadflo, and not Irish. The third one down is the author responding to Irish's first comment and so on. Now please take a minute and imagine having to do this for an article with a hundred or more replies.
