## Suggestion

Have an "Add Comment" button and a "Start New Thread" button with the former adding a comment to the "General Comments" thread, creating it if it doesn't yet exist.

---

Right now, starting a new thread seems heavyweight if I don't expect much or any back-and-forth. For example, both of the comments on [this answer](https://meta.codidact.com/posts/282349) seem like that and are worse for the fact that the titles don't support Markdown.

In this vein, an additional suggestion might be to expand the "General Comments" thread by default, or at least part of it.

Basically, the "traditional" unthreaded experience is usually more than adequate and much lighter weight than this, but now it's essentially gone. Threads seem very useful when needed but not needed all the time.
