On discussions with Tallbloke we have decided to provisionally enable paging of comments to reduce the loading on web browsers and speed page load times for those on dialup connections.
Initially we have set this to page break at 100 comments.
This will have no effect except for the rare cases of articles with many comments. (a few are >500)
WordPress will display the first 100 comments and in addition the last comment even if that is pages later.
The only downside which comes to mind is a lost ability to search all comments at once using a web browser find facility.
Please comment as you feel necessary, good or bad.
