Option to put comments first in "message board replies"

Option to put comments first in "message board replies"

Short, concise description of the idea
When comments to postings are emailed to the user, they default to display the posting first, then the comments. There should be an option to display the comments first, then the original posting.

Full description of the idea
Can a user option be added to allow user comments to come first in email notification, then the posting? I didn't see an option for this. Right now comment email shows the posting first, then the comment. But, since I sometimes get my yahoo email from my wireless web on my phone, I usually end up having to wade through an especially long posting on that tiny screen, periodically hitting [more] until it finally gets to the comment, only to find something anti-climactic like "hey, I do that too". The option of putting the comments first would make the comment notification feature a lot more usable when wireless email users are away from a computer.

An ordered list of benefits

  • For people using wireless web email clients, we would not have to scroll through a long posting to get to the comment at the end. Putting the comments first would save us time from having to scroll, tiny page by tiny page, to the bottom where the actual comment is listed.
  • An ordered list of problems/issues involved

  • none?
  • An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation

  • This would be set under Personal Information > Enable message boards > Get message board replies as a check box for "display comments first", and perhaps default to being unchecked.
