That's ridiculous not having a button to chose the order of comments. I believe most users would prefer having the option to choose the order of comments. It's not going to "clutter" the interface that much! Also the default for most sites is 'most recent first'. Sheesh!!

    Hello, and thanks for commenting.

    It would be one thing to choose to reorder comments if they were always top-level comments -- that is, only replies to the story itself. But much meaningful commentary is nested in the replies to other comments. Those sites which hide such replies unless they're specifically opened don't tend to promote the on-site dialogue to the extent that we like to do.

    Soon we'll be rolling out a new structure for comments that will speed up the load time, especially on mobile devices, and will simplify the display a little bit. Perhaps that change will address some of your concerns.
