Hide Deleted Comments
In places where I can see deleted comments (admin/moderator, possibly also comments I wrote myself and deleted (not sure if that's the case or not)), they should be secondary to the active comments. Specifically, I found a post where there have been many comments, and several of the older ones have been deleted. Because there are many comments, only the first 'n' are displayed when initially viewing the post. But because there are many deleted comments, I have to click for "more" in order to see the ones that are actually active and relevant.
I suggest one of the following:
Whenever there are deleted comments, show something like
3 Deleted Commentswith a button/link to display the details in-line.
If there are more than 'n' comments such that not all comments are initially displayed, and there are any groups of 2 or more deleted comments within 'n', then display any deleted comments as
3 Deleted commentsetc. as noted above and count the notice of deleted comments as if it were 1 comment. Example, with n = 8:
- 1 active
- 3 deleted
- 2 active
- 4 deleted
- 5 active
Current display: 1 active, 3 deleted, 2 active, 2 deleted, "more = 7"
Proposed display: 1 active, 1 deleted placeholder, 2 active, 1 deleted placeholder, 3 active, "more = 2"
