How do comment voting and flagging work?

Recently I looked at this question. The second answer has more than 5 comments so comments can be expanded. If I do so, the order of comments changes. This does not seem to make sense. Correct me if a system is behind this behaviour.


This is by design.

Comments with positive score will appear first, as it usually means "those are good comments".

Also, see this: How does comment sort order work?

  • I respect the design decision, but the concept does not feel very intuitive. Normal users will have problems understanding the idea, I think. – AGuyCalledGerald Oct 30 '12 at 11:12

    Might be so, in my opinion it's a good thing but I'm not normal user, lol. You can start new post here on Meta tagged feature-request asking to change this behavior but I don't think you will have much luck.. – Shadow 10 Years Wizard Oct 30 '12 at 11:21

It is not the order of comments that changes. Some comments are excluded from the compact view and included in the full view. But the order remains the same.
