Comment(by hnla):

 Guys this one ticket has been running for 6 weeks and appears to be
 holding up the release of 1.2.6 albeit for RC testing. 1.2.6 has some much
 needed patches.

 This ticket is an 'Enhancement' type it's not a 'Defect'. That all
 comments visually display is not a defect you are meant to be able to see
 comments! that horrendous numbers of comments at various levels upset the
 visual layout of a page is more a case of controlling how comments are
 made. providing a means to show /hide levels of comments is a good idea
 but is an 'Enhancement'

 The priority status of this ticket is also open to debate, to mark it as
 'Major' is questionable and it ought to be set at 'Normal'

 If there is a 'Defect' in all this it rests with BP and it's handling of
 nested comments? is there not a reason that one can set a particular
 number of permitted levels with WP comments?

 Comments of comments of Comments of Comments are not conversations and
 actually rapidly become impossible to follow.

 I'm not in any way attempting to denigrate the work that has gone into
 this and agree with the principle that has been explored in show/hide, but
 I do feel that a little perspective needs to be brought to the
