I could recall a discussion about this and found it.


 From what I can gather, nested comments were said to add complexity  
(Drupal, Nuke and many other packages have that built in). I  
personally think it should be left to the Webmatser to decide what's  
more suitable. And nested comments should probably not be there by  
default... as it's easier to harness extra complexity, as opposed to  
stripping it.
