I would like to try putting the comment box after the last (most recent) comment, as that is the message one most ofter responds to. Having to now scroll up and down between comment box and last message(s) is often of a nuisance.
While that sounds logical, I think it will be a usability problem. If someone doesn't see a the comment box immediately, they may not know to scroll down past dozens of messages to find it.
Are there cases where someone should be posting new comments who /hasn't/ read the existing comments? I would hope that new comments would come only after reading what has already transpired -- in which case one would find the comment box when one runs out of previous comments to read.
