A Comment on Comments

I retrieved a clump of comment notices out of my spam filter today, so I am going to respond to some soon. Thanks for reading!

One thing I’ve been wondering about: Is there any blogging software that let’s people “comment on comments?” I’ll often see a long thread in some blog and the conversation is going in a few different directions. Same thing happens in listservs. I guess Slashdot organizes things along those lines, but it would be nice to see a slightly user-friendlier way of disaggregating the “threads” in a comment “rope.”
