I’ve been enjoying the back-and-forth with @peter at https://lobste.rs/s/w4auk6/more_shell_less_egg_all_this#c_xln3fi. However, the deep nesting of this thread is getting really silly.
I’m not sure what the right fix is, but the obvious point of comparison: on HN there’s a special page for every subthread, so clicking on the link to a comment provides an escape hatch for deeply nested sub-threads.
A solution to this issue may also help resolve Issue #394.
I’ve managed to get the Lobsters codebase up and running. But I probably shouldn’t try to prematurely design a fix. What do people with more experience here think?
(There’s also the question of whether this should block on the transition of the site.)
