Some readers are bemused by the new system* that splits comments over several pages. I don't know if this feature will be rolled back, but here's a work-around:
a) click headline of the article in question
b) scroll to the bottom of the comments
c) click the [Preview] button
This should show all the comments, but not the main article.
(* I've now used 4 blogging systems: MovableType, Blogger, Wordpress, Typepad. This one (typepad) is generally pretty good... but I reckon wordpress is the best, just quietly).
