There is one top-level comment (TLC); it has score: -1
That TLC has 4 children, respectively scored: -1, 0, 1, and 2.
EACH of those children has 4 children, respectively scored: -1, 0, 1, and 2.

Threaded-TOS - (T:-1,B:5) != (T:5, B:-1) 4 comments

For the following "T:" denotes setting for Threshold and "B:" denotes a setting for Breakthrough.

Am I missing something or shouldn't: (T:-1, B:5) produce the same result as: (T:5, B:-1)

Under Threaded-TOS, I'm seeing different results on: https://dev.soylentnews.org/article.pl?sid=17/02/16/0222248 where the highest score for a comment is: 2.

T:-1, B:5 -- https://dev.soylentnews.org/article.pl?sid=17/02/16/0222248&threshold=-1&highlightthresh=5&commentsort=0&mode=threadtos&page=1&noupdate=1#commentwrap

T:5, B:-1 -- https://dev.soylentnews.org/article.pl?sid=17/02/16/0222248&threshold=5&highlightthresh=-1&commentsort=0&mode=threadtos&page=1&noupdate=1#commentwrap

Based on what I understand, T:-1, B:5 Says show me everything (scoring -1 or better) in full (oh, and boost visibility of those scoring 5 or better) -- but we are already selecting to show everything anyway

OTOH, T:5, B:-1 Says show me only those scoring 5 or better (there are none for that story), but boost all those scoring -1 or better, which is ALL of the comments, so it again selects to display everything.

Top Level Comments not 'controlled' by threshold/breakthrough -- can you say spam city?

At the moment, no matter what Breakthrough/Threshold setting I choose, every Top Level Comment (TLC) is displayed fully expanded.

See: https://dev.soylentnews.org/article.pl?sid=17/02/16/0222248&threshold=5&highlightthresh=5&commentsort=0&mode=threadtos&page=1&noupdate=1#commentwrap

Consider what the "Deuteronomy child bride", "Penis Bird", and "Cheap Canadian V14gra" users would make of knowing that they can make sure that their TLC will always appear in full.
