I was wondering what you (and everyone, really) might think of this idea. What if we could comment on comments? In other words, each post in our comment section could be a mini-thread of it's own. This would create a completely satisfactory blog, for my purposes, anyway.

I could picture it working just like it does now, with new posts at the top, but under each entry, a means of adding comments that would thread with new posts added to the bottom.

It could be kept pretty tidy by adding a "+show comments" button under each entry, and if you wanted to get more elaborate, give users the ability to control who can post a new entry: the user only (for pure blog functionality), the user's friends, or any user.

I'm hoping you're not just completely sick of this subject.

you can comment in your own profile.

Oh, I know. I do sometimes! What I'm suggesting is adding code so that each 'comment' sort of becomes it's own 'thread', with comments about *it* organized from old to new underneath it. The main 'threads' would still be ordered new to old, like it works now.

i'm guessing that tera means something like this:

normal blog reply

answer or criticism

without the external source obviously, just alternating colors.

sorry if this has already been sorted, i don't go to the blog pages, don't even know what it looks like, I've just seen this in other commenting forums (like news or yahoo).

EDIT: i know you'd have to arrange it better, that is kinda confusing. sorry i can't find a link to it, just hope you get me.
