elizabeth tobey,

I just came upon this thread and the comment Lisa Renee made regarding side conversations really resonated with me.

See, I find myself participating in side conversations so often I sometimes don’t have time to write. And I’m certainly not complaining. I know that is a choice I make, when I make it.

However, I’m EXTREMELY distractible. Have a wicked case of the Adult ADHDs, even medicated. I go in with the intention of just reading the article, or story, or whatnot and somehow always get pulled into, if not participating, at least READING the side conversations.

This happens in my feed, as well. That’s how I got here just now. I get comments in my feed and sometimes never do get to the original work.


But, I would like to be less distracted. I know there is an option, as the author, of hiding comments.

How hard would it be to add a feature that would allow the reader to hide ALL comments and just receive original posts in the feed?

I would love that. It would make my experience much more streamlined.

I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up, but I know I want it to be spelled right and punctuated correctly. I guess that’s something.
