What I’ve been trying to do in busy threads is quote the point that I’m replying to and edit it down. Like in this post itself!
We’re not used to doing that, but I imagine as time goes on we’ll start doing this naturally? Seems like the only way to keep things clear. We’ll see, early days and all that.
I’m not too keen on Theo’s method of clicking on the reply symbol, because it means to understand the post you have to read it and then trawl backwards through the conversation, reading the earlier comment last. It’s like reading a page right to left, for me anyways. Works fine in small threads where you can remember the gist of everything, but in longer ones I find it a pain.
