I’ve removed the WordPress feature that allows multi-tiered comments, because many of us kept finding our comments in the wrong place. We are back to the old-fashioned, linear, one-tier system. Not the perfect solution but at least it’s predictable.
Therefore, when posting a comment in reply to an earlier comment, be sure to begin with the name of the person you are responding to so the conversation can be followed by the rest of us.
