I posted a comment on Gawker that garnered a lot of responses. I then responded to some of the comments that were posted on the thread I started and somewhere along the line, some of my comments and comments made by others simply vanished from the thread.
The comments that vanished were really salient to the conversation and their exclusion, really changes the tone of the entire thread. Is there some way that comments can be dismissed by others, and if so, how?
