You know what I miss? StatusNet's tree-based threading.

@elomatreb Yes, but most UIs since StatusNet haven't exposed these things, other than maybe Reddit

@elomatreb not that I'm advocating Reddit as a place to have conversations (any more... it was a better place for that in 2008)

@cwebber @elomatreb it really was, for a minute there, a place that i learned a lot.

apart from everything else wrong with the reddit of now, i suspect the threading worked a lot worse as number of commenters escalated into the hundreds per post.


@brennen @elomatreb Note that flat comment structures don't scale either. Reddit is pretty bad... imagine how much worse it would be with a *flat* post structure tho! Probably its conversation threading has been one of the few things that *has* scaled.
