Why did they not emphasize this feature when getting rid of thumbs? Seems like it could have saved a lot of bitching. Also, it's not more effort for others to know to look if we just thumbs the post in addition to a photo comment. Then it just becomes like the old system but more comprehensive.
lets be honest, checking a thumb, to see if someone maybe left a comment in a photo, going to the photo and checking for comments..... is all more cumbersome than thumb comments which were right there and super easy to see. as much as the new fact is cool, i dont think it is the solution.
