Comments are a subsection of a blog, so it's a pain in the ass to have to select an option to see the original post to which one is responding, particularly if the site doesn't get many comments to begin with.
Also, what madman designed the Blogger non-pop-up comment thread template? That shit is *just*ugly.*
No part of this statement should be intended to convey a belief that I will, do, or have had commenters.
