Threaded comments

WordPress now supports the option of threaded comments, where people can respond to a specific comment in a sub-thread, rather than just adding to the bottom of a single list.

Do people think incorporating this feature would improve this site, or make it less functional?

I would have no objections to giving it a whirl if doing so was easily reversible, but it seems certain that any switch back to linear comments would turn threaded conversations into confusing messes. As such, I would have to be pretty certain the shift would be beneficial in order to make it.

In the spring of 2005, I graduated from the University of British Columbia with a degree in International Relations and a general focus in the area of environmental politics. In the fall of 2005, I began reading for an M.Phil in IR at Wadham College, Oxford. Outside school, I am very interested in photography, writing, and the outdoors. I am writing this blog to keep in touch with friends and family around the world, provide a more personal view of graduate student life in Oxford, and pass on some lessons I've learned here.
