What do you think of the new “Featured Comments” feature on Quora?

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. 🙂
