G+ comments for the heavy hitters are write-only. With guys like Kevin Rose getting 44 comments in two minutes, they will need threading and +1 powered moderation. I'd like to see the YouTube style of floating best comments to the top.

- interesting solution...i was thinking about suggesting a setting where users could choose to see comments appear in reverse chronology. but yours is awesome, too. :)Jul 21, 2011
- Just had this same thought in relation to an earlier post of mine. My conclusion: if there's more than 5 comments then collapse any that are not from (a) people in my circles, (b) have been +1ed or (c) from high-reputation people.
Option (c) is not entirely straightforward. Follower count isn't a perfect measure. Any scoring system can be gamed.Jul 22, 2011
- reverse chronological makes sense. if it was threaded, it could be done by thread.
I like that a lot! Twitter rating systems like Klout and PeerIndex work like PageRank, show it's "good enough" for something like comments.Jul 22, 2011
- I'd love to see a real-time word cloud for each post that dynamically adjust as new comments are added.Jul 23, 2011
- that's a great idea, David. or maybe some slick clustering visualization based on word density? neat! surely doable as a Chrome extension. i've also been asking our friends in Mountain View to give each comment its own permalink.Jul 23, 2011
