We need to let users be able to see the replies to their Hidden Comments

Especially if they're not TUs. What could be a learning experience, for those who are willing to learn, turns into a simple banishment of their comments without much if any explanation. Not to be able to reply to, just to read.

I brought this up either before or during the DK5 changeover, and it's time to bring it up again, even though I know your to be done list is still at least as long as it ever was. It really could make a difference.

My thought would be that it could stand out in dark red on the Comments page, with the replies only being accessible through a variant on the standalone comments page, which could also stand to come up in red. Some of the best advice ever given on the site (and some of the worst, I grant you) comes up in reply to the Hiddens.
