Comment-shifting: I appreciate the efforts by mods to make threads out of hot topics in the Huddle. Perhaps they could include notations of such on the story and the affected Huddle, just to allay any confusion? For example, on the Seahawks-Packers story linked above, something like (Editor note: The first 22 comments were relocated from the Monday Huddle.) and (Editor note: 22 comments from this Huddle were relocated here.) in the Huddle itself. (Also, I apologize for the broken link -- the system is putting slashes before my quotes.)

Yeah I would appreciate that too. It's confusing and in a way can seem a little high-handed to repackage the comments that way. I like the end product since it makes a standalone thread that people will find and take part in, but it's been bugging me a little too. I support Etrigan's idea of a marker in the new thread that it has happened.

What's the advantage?

Slightly less confusion, slightly more transparency.
