Is anyone else getting overwhelmed by the new(ish) business of the comment section?

hard to get a picture that explains it because it’s kinda interminable

All of this “conversation between x and y” …scroll down and there it all is again, only now it’s “conversation between x, y and z” and that just goes on and on and on. I was trying to find a specific comment earlier and just kept running through the same conversation OVER AND OVER AND OVER because people were adding to it and it was replaying from the top each time.

What the heck is that about? Can someone explain it to me?

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
