This would probably be a bit complex, but it would be neat if chains of two or more replies (B replies to A, C replies to B) that are all (B and C) recent enough show up on /comments would get grouped into a single chain of three comments (A (B (C))) instead of first getting (B (C)) and then lower down getting (A (B ("click to show more"))).

This comment, currently at 0 karma, is currently hidden for me on the /comments listing behind a "load more comments (1 reply)" link under the parent comment from Stephen_Barnes.

Nice... works great for me.

When the same parent shows up multiple times on the comments page and I click the thumbs-up icon on a parent that isn't the topmost one on the page, the thumbs-up only goes green and the comment score goes up only on the topmost parent on the page and the one I clicked remains unchanged.

Also, this is useful and I like it, thanks.
