I read all the comments on a question I'm answering after I've answered myself. That's one of the best features of the Q&A section.

A lot of the answers are interesting and informative, so if the question is a good one, I'll usually at least skim the answer.  Maybe like a few.

Well actually if there exists 120 comments already it is more likely I read the most recent 10. Unfortunately, AR presents them sorted by upvotes disrupting the direction of the conversation.

I reserve the upvotes and likes and such as a mechanism for alerting the originator of the comment.
