Read It

Ever revisit a popular story page and wish you could easily distinguish the new comments from the stuff you've already read? Well, now you can!

New comments are now shown in blue, while old comments are shown in gray. Simple enough, right?

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.

ISTM Pipedot now has more features than soylentnews despite having a fifth of the developers
