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 2 [3 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
