I feel like the users of this site deserve some transparency, no? That's fair, right?

is it not the case that the root/base comment is shown and the most popular can be one of the responses to that?

sorting by time...

post 1 [21 likes]

-reply to post 1[10 likes]

post 2 [3 likes]

- reply to post 2 [100 likes]

sorting by likes moves post 2 to the top as it has most popular comment as a response

needs to have initial comment for context

not looked closely but seemed that way to me
