 We have a no-JS fallback for comment replies. Normally JS moves the
 comment form around. For people with JavaScript disabled, they follow the
 `?replytocom={123}` link. This results in a lot of extra crawling by
 search engines (potentially an additional crawl per reply-able comment!)
 in exchange for enabling an awkwardly executed, likely underused, and non-
 essential feature for non-JS users.

 I'd like to consider making comment reply JS-only.
