When reading an article on the main page, I then normally go through and read all of the comments, however it gets a little tedious when there are several pages, or when I want to find a certain comment on a particular page, and cannot remember who said it, and what page it was on.

Would it be at all possible to have an option to load all of the comments onto a single page, so it would be possible to scroll down uninterupted?

This may not be exactly what you're looking for, but currently its the best option available.

1. In your settings, increase the post per page to 40.

2. Use the Search box to search for a comment that was made only in that thread.

3. Try Threaded Mode, its on the top right corner of every thread (above post #1).

We could see about increasing the size of the single page view (as shown above), but not sure we can make it unlimited. Some threads are very very long.

Thread Search (also described above) will help if you are looking for a comment.

That would be hard to find where you left off if it was one GIANT page. Look at the "Steve Jobs Dies" thread, it's got nearly 4000 posts. That would be HUGE on one page.
