I'm surprised that people think everyone subscribed to their RSS feed actually reads their blog. In Google Reader, I'm subscribed to hundreds of feeds (including a number of bundles), but really only read a couple of them. The same for iGoogle, etc. (re: http://friendfeed.com/friendf...)
Seeing as how in most FF entries there are comments much more interesting than the initial post, wouldn't it be a good thing if we could start new posts from a single comment?If comments were threaded, maybe then the new post could have all its dependent comments/answers as comments for the new post
I find myself wanting special treatment of the items where I'm engaged in a comment conversation. Many times I miss a reply to one of these items when it scrolls off of my front page and several days later I remember and find it in my Me feed. However, multi-day latency generally kills the thread.
