I'd say the Comments page doesn't look that useful to me; a quick glance and I was already lost in conversations that started who knows where. It'd be ok if comments were self-contained, but they're usually not at all. Heck, people don't even quote.
I'd like to go further, though, and say that I'd like an easy way to watch the whole article for comment responses; Currently you can only watch the thread that branches from your first reply. There are some articles where I have nothing to say but would like to read the comments as they arrive; for other articles I post replies but would like to watch all the threads anyway, even the ones I'm not participating in.
