  • I haven't looked too closely at what's going on, but I didn't think it used AJAX. If it did, then when you clicked to expand a comment, there'd be a round trip to the server to get the comment text.

    I think the way it works is that the full text of the comments is included in the page (good for Google as you say) and client-side JavaScript is used to show/hide bits.
