  • One other feature I'd really like to see here is for the Subject field to be pre-filled with "Re: ORIGINAL SUBJECT", like in e-mail clients.

      It is. It's only not prefilled if you are replying to the story/journal/etc., because then almost every comment would have the same subject as the story title. We don't want that, so if you respond to the story itself, you have to add your own subject. But if you reply to another comment (as I am doing here), then it is prefilled (as it was here).
      • Ok. That doesn't make sense to me.

        Why wouldn't you want the same subject? That's the current context in which you write the reply. If the conversation changes to something else, then you change the subject.

        But never mind, if you already think of it as a feature I doubt I'll change your mind.
        • It makes more sense on Slashdot, where there are often hundreds of comments on a single story. On use.perl, I don’t see the point.
