Comment sorting a mystery March 21, 2006 5:43 AM   Subscribe

What's going on here with how my comments are sorted?

It looks like they're being sorted by comment date DESC, except that the three latest comments are not quite right.

Note that I'm ridiculously tired, and haven't taken into account that the page might be cached, that the page might be sorting properly, and I just cannot read, or that I am completely insane.

Feel free to chastize, flag and subsequently close thread as necessary.

Not at all a big deal; I'm just curious.

I think they're sorted by thread number DESC and then date ASC.

cillit's got it. It's the same way all thread lists and comment lists are. Lists of threads are in reverse-chronological order, and then inside each thread, the list of comments is in forward-chronological order.

It is working as expected.
