Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

In the intervening months since the feature was introduced, there have always been at most 5 comments shown under a post when the page loads. However, it seems that, on Meta, that limit has been tripled.

There doesn't yet seem to be a user preference to tweak this number, so I think that this is likely a bug somewhere.

As an example, check out this post. Instead of showing 5, now 15 comments are displayed under the post, taking up significant space:

See Jeff's answer to this question.

He's just upped the displayed comments from 5 to 15.

Don't know how I missed that. I guess this is one of those changes you don't notice right away. Still, I think it would be best to leave this up to the user, as was originally promised. – Kyle Cronin Jul 11 '09 at 18:07
Lame, I don't want to be forced to scroll through 15 comments on large discussion pages. – Ian Elliott Jul 11 '09 at 18:27
Don't blame me - I'm just the messenger ;) – ChrisF Jul 11 '09 at 20:06
