EDIT : Aaaand... it's (un)official, some people have been putting minuses elsewhere than the equalizer... naughty, naughty! It's not like I can't see who you are. Well, so I can't. But still, you know who you are, put yourselves in the corner and give yourselves a talking to .
I guess having each option be self-contained using both pluses and minuses will be the way to go.

the problem

by apotheon In reply to So

The biggest problem is that it shows up in place of the "reply" link, and mimics its appearance to some extent. It is also divested of easily accessible context, even if there's a link back to original context -- which is, frankly, a pretty ****-poor substitute for immediate context.

Even worse, you have to open up a comment to see that there have been replies made to it "offline", in their terminology.

Oh, there's another problem; they're overloading the term "offline" in a confusing manner. I think this is an awful implementation of an idea that is mediocre at best. Well, gawdawful, maybe. I'm not willing to disagree with your estimation of its awfulness at this point.

I dunno why...

by AnsuGisalas In reply to Perhaps I'm slightly warp ...

but this made me think of the time when our puppy Pug ate a frozen mouse carcass it found on the road.
It just pounced on it, out of nowhere, and while I was frantically trying to pry open its jaws, it was frantically trying to continue to eat it... and when I finally got its jaws to open wide, the greedy little female dog took advantage of that and just swallowed the whole thing...
That was just so... funny and ew.
Pugs are supposed to be picky eaters ... not this one.
