> We intend to get rid of pagination

Please don't. Or just make it optional. Infinite scrolling is evil.

Oh I certainly didn't mean HN would do infinite scrolling. That'd be gross, too complicated, and would contradict the old-web style of the site. But if we can just generate entire pages quickly enough, I don't see why we wouldn't go back to doing that.

Strong agree here. Infinite scrolling is painful. I would rather be given an ENTIRE page to scroll as I see fit.

Why would it be infinite? Just load all the comments at once! Show me everything.

Modern caching strategies mean it wouldn't be any database load or concerning computational overhead? I'm no expert on HN-scale sites though.

Anyway, my 2 cents is I'd prefer everything loaded at once, no pagination, no infinite scroll.
