Okay, new Comments interface now live.
Magic thing that detects Livejournal usericons for people who use their LJ as the URL has been temporarily disabled until I convince it to stop ass-raping LJ’s servers (in LJ’s opinion. Aquarionics’ server has now got a 24 hour ban from LJ. Which would improve it’s productivity were it human).
The new interface passes the acid test of stupid length comments threads, and now gives an indication of the time distance between comments.
It remains the only threaded comment system on my feeds list, apart from LJ, which interests me a lot. I wonder why the major locally-hosted blogging engines all stick to linear comments?
