However, when I visit /problems/30 , I notice that these two comments appear at the same horizontal indentation, so visually it appears to me as if they were both made as responses to the original problem rather than one as a response to the other.
I have seen comment replies sometimes indented but not consistently. Could comment replies be indented consistently for easier understanding? Thanks!
I wonder how closely this relates to the need gap "Getting things done at individual level"*. It seems to me that both are indicating the individuals are feeling an urge to spend time on things that they later consider to have been a suboptimal use of time.

*I don't seem to be able to link to Needgap from within Needgap at the moment but I've reported this to the meta discussion
Allow linking to needgap comment url from this page
I attempted to enter a link to https colon slash slash needgap dot com slash comments slash 1099 in the comment below, in an attempt to provide partial reproduction instructions, but I received an error saying that there was an invalid url
Unfortunately I also can't enter the full url into this comment either for the same reason, so I've written out "colon" and "slash" and "dot".
, "Jeff , posted comment on Getting things done at individual level" ).
When I entered the comment, I saw a warning that looked like:
"Character limit reached: 1262"
So, I made some changes to the comment (removing some words) so that the message disappeared.
However, then when I tried to make this change (in this case I was editing an existing comment, and I pushed "Save"), I encountered a new page telling me that my comment was too long and needed to be < 1250 characters.
I eventually discovered that to submit this comment required removing more words (you can see the final, submitted version in the link above).
Is it possible for the "Character limit reached" warning to appear in all of the cases where the comment is too long?
You might like ActivityRecommender, which quantitatively measures and optimizes your happiness, motivation and efficiency:
1. Record what you've accomplished; reflect later
2. See what's correlated with future motivation
3. Check the graphs of time spent. Are you getting more motivated?
4. Run an efficiency experiment: agree to several tasks to do now. One is chosen randomly for you to do. In the future you'll do another one. The ratio of the time spent is an unbiased estimate of the ratio of your efficiency at these times. Compete against yourself!
5. Write down partial ideas to revisit later. Lazily sort them whenever you want, like a tournament. Turn them into ToDos when they're ready
6. See what's made you most happy/sad recently
7. Reminisce: see a randomly chosen, high-rated comment
8. Feedback! Whenever you do something, you see a positive/negative number, some (usually) encouraging words, and a button for more details
9. Receive suggestions for what's next: even request something Fun and at least as good as the game you're considering
