Consistent posting order . . . .

You know, I think you're right, Blaisepascal. That's a good point. SilverMagpie (talk) 00:29, 7 January 2017 (UTC)

With a Wiki, you can edit the posting order any way you want, there's no reason you have to add your comments to the bottom Blaisepascal (talk) 20:15, 20 August 2012 (UTC)

First!! (ok, bad joke...)--B. P. (talk) 19:36, 20 August 2012 (UTC)

I personally prefer seeing comments in chronological order, especially if the respondents reply to each other. I find it very annoying to see the reply before I've had a chance to read the original. The current comment system on Slate (where not only do new comments appear first, the page defaults to auto-updating, so the comments move down the page as you are trying to read them) is especially horrible.

I prefer threaded discussions. Chronological is close enough for short discussions, but threaded makes it so much easier to find read all the replies a comment got. (Yes, I know I'm replying to a year-old post.) gijobarts (talk) 07:06, 2 September 2013 (UTC)

This is precisely why Digg failed and now Reddit will fail. The moment the owners think they can manipulate discussions is the moment any discussion has any real value. 02:53, 12 October 2015 (UTC)

I wonder if this cartoon was the inspiration for the Russian trolling operations targeted at the US 2016 Presidential elections and the subsequent European elections. (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

He definitely foretold Bloomberg's run for Dem nominee in 2019. (Maybe Bloomberg needed more college students.) 01:52, 31 March 2020 (UTC)

What?? This is definitely a prediction about "democracy" in Serbia few years after this comic. By the way, who's Bloomberg? BytEfLUSh (talk) 03:26, 17 February 2022 (UTC)

Does anyone have any examples of parties actually doing this/anyone know how to contact them? Sure could use the extra cash. 😂 Heleatunda (talk) 17:09, 19 August 2023 (UTC)
