Comment Thread Collapse

Comment Thread Collapse

Short, concise description of the idea
I would like the ability to collapse comment threads that have been expanded, possibly even hide individual comments.

Full description of the idea
I really love the fact that we can now expand comment threads without leaving the main post. Unfortunately, some of the threads are so deep, I find myself wanting to re-collapse a thread after I finished reading it. At the moment, the only way to do that is to reload the page and let all of the expanded threads collapse.

Additionally, the idea of collapsing threads or hiding individual comments would allow one to hide comments and comment threads one doesn't wish to see, but has no ability to remove or screen.

Perhaps this can be done with a +/- symbol to expand and collapse a given comment or comment thread.

An ordered list of benefits
  • Greater flexibility in reading comments.
  • Ability to hide undesirable comments and only see the comments you wish to see.
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • I can't think of any drawbacks to this. You are only changing what you see, not what any other user sees.
