Ask HN: Why is threading on HN so bad?
3 points by chagaif 44 days ago | hide | past | favorite | 6 comments
If I comment on a comment that was upvoted up to the top, I am also then bumped up to the top. I often struggle to find the second comment to an article because the first comment is full of comments to that comment and comments to the comments of that comment. Especially on mobile I find myself scrolling up and down until I find the second most upvoted comment..

You can collapse a thread by clicking the - in a post's header.

Yeah, you can click the minus sign. It's in brackets like so:


I completely missed that, thanks so much! Maybe this should be the default?

Well, I don’t think there is any question about it. It can only be attributable to human error. This sort of thing has cropped up before, and it has always been due to human error.

...because you don't get it (sorry !;)). If you click on the minus right to the time, you can fold all the comments from a thread.
