- 2Posted by sdesapio 10 years, 5 months agoThe "comment deleted" box offers context to the deleted comment's child comments. If we removed the "comments deleted" box, we would have child comments simply floating without a parent comment making it very difficult to follow the thread.Mark as read | Best of... | Permalink|

Expandable/collapsible posting would be an improvement too. A better mousetrap is always possible, and if the one you need doesn't exist, build your own.Mark as read | Parent | Best of... | Permalink|
