After two glorious months of having escaped this, this “feature” has finally been rolled out to me.
Like pretty much everyone has said: hamfisted. The World needed demotion of trolling: it did not need three tiers of comments. It did not need yet another premiss for headscratching at what makes a comment featured: there are non-featured comments that the answer author has upvoted, and so far I haven’t seen a quality difference between featured and non-featured comments.
Those of you that answered two months ago: how many of you have made your peace with it? And how many of you have seen it add value?
I will do everything I can to make responses to that in comments be featured. 🙂
