When I tick 'Display most recent comments first' and 'Initially display 20 comments' I'd rather it display the order as it does normally (chronologically, but with the most recent comments displayed). It's a little confusing when it's upside down with HubPage regulars used to seeing it the one way. Know what I mean?
Yea I complained when the feature was added. It didn't do any good. Most I got was the ability to see most recent first with most recent on top. just sucks when you have a comment with many questions and you can't remember them all. I have to reply to whatever I remember, save the comment, scrool to the top where the comment saves, and answer the rest.
It's also not user friendly for non-HP users to have to scroll to the bottom to ask a question, although it may make people read previous comments to potentially answer their question. Typically, though, they don't read and ask the same question the 50th time anyway.

I have my comments set to read from last to first. It seems easier that way to follow the natural thread. Now I am thinking though that doing it the other way around so that the most recent comments are first could...
