As an experiment, I’ve removed the IntenseDebate feature and reverted to the default WordPress format. I’ve also forced a single layer of comments. That is, all comments will listed in strict chronological order, with the newest at the bottom.
This also means that clicking a comment in the Recent Comments column to the right will take you directly to that comment.
Let me know how well this works for you.
PS — I’m having trouble with the blog sometimes defaulting to the Mobile Version view, which is quite odd. Hopefully, it’s a caching issue and will correct itself. In the meantime, I’ve turned off the Mobile Version entirely, in hopes of clearing the problem.
