Not entirely sure what you mean by parent links. Does it mean adding the target attribute to links?
<a href="/" target="_parent">Some link</a>
This would be one of those "frame-buster" type constructs, but since there are no framesets or iframes on this site, when is this useful?

I think he was looking for a link on a comment that would bring the user to the comment that it was in reply to. Looking at the situation now, it looks like clicking on the comment link isolates the conversation and shows the parent as would be expected by a parent link.

That's really good, and makes a lot of sense, but I think its one of those things that is so good, people are missing the worse solution because it was more familiar and discoverable.
