This is a very useful feature.

Agreed - this is very useful and is a huge improvement in useability. Im not aware of any other site on earth that does this. Does anyone know of another site offering this functionality? Has it ever been seen in the wild?

Does anyone know of another site offering this functionality? (my site) does this with a 'new' word in bold next to the comment, I used to show the whole comment title in bold, but found it distracting.

This is a standard option in Drupal, so I expect a few sites do it.

There are other possible similar features, e.g. have comments by the author of the story shown differently, comments by the user viewing the page, anonymous comments, etc, but most of them become more distracting than they are worth.

The primary reason for this is that we (SN) don't use a rolling release system, preferring to do bi-monthly releases. The feature gap between the two sites will be considerably less when we do our rollout in June.
