I have put the comments back in the order they were: oldest first. That seems to be the general preference.
I renewed Echo (for a month at least) and want to ask what you think of the comments being in real time. That means they are updated automatically (which doesn't matter one way or the other on this blog) but also that the newest are on top of the thread.
I'm going to leave it like that for a few days unless everyone agrees on it being bad.
