Threading comment system consist of original comment and several replies to that comment. It makes the whole system work like a chain. Blogger allows reader to post a reply to a previously posted comment and thus the discussion continues. As soon as it was launched people started using it on their blogs and websites but since it was a new feature therefore involved some bugs.

The worst problem that everyone was facing with this commenting system is that when a user click a post link, he or she is taken to the comment box at the end of the page. Rather than showing the post content upon clicking, it redirected user at the bottom of the page where threading comment system was embedded. 

So if you're one of those users who want to get rid of this feature then follow the steps given below:

  • Bug which is forwarding user at the bottom of the page when click on post URL.
  • Readers are not able to view the content thus the user landing was not worth .
  • Ratings are falling heavily of page views and revenue.
  • Give rise to confused and repeated questions and thus create ambiguity.
