I think it would be great if you could add a new tab for Recent Comments thus removing that feature from the front page. This is one area where I spend a good bit of time and I find the current navigation to be cumbersome. After I am finished reading and/or responding to a thread I have to go back to the front page to see what other recent comment I might want to read and/or respond to next. I understand that I can move to the previous and next threads, but really, when I don't know what those thread are, it is like selecting a pig in a poke. It's of no use to me. Having a tab would allow me to click on the tab after each thread to get back to a page with all the recent comments. The page layout would be much easier to view since it would not be limited by a single third-page column as it now is. This page would also load much more quickly since it would not be encumbered by all the images and extraneous items on the front page. Who knows it might even take load off your servers.
