#6983: Failing UX for replying to an activity-comment item's replies

 In a member's activity stream, replies to activity items are listed as
 activity-comment items. Follow-up (child) replies to the original comment
 are displayed as well, but without the entire conversation's context.
 Since an activity-comment item exists within the context of the original
 activity item it replied to, users cannot reply to the single activity
 item. This is why for activity-comment items the 'Reply' link and the
 reply form are not present.

 However, the follow-up (child) replies of the acvitity-comment item *do*
 have a 'Reply' link present. While this is in itself confusing without the
 conversation's context, this renders a failing UX as there is no reply
 form present in the context of the activity item.

 To solve this, we can best remove the 'Reply' link for the activity-
 comment item replies. Another solution is to remove the follow-up (child)
 replies entirely from the activity item.

 PS. This might only apply to installations with nested commenting enabled.
