The new OSNews is significantly harder to read than the old one. I don't know how other peoples' browsers render it, but on Firefox, I get big bold green words for "Score", "Vote +1", etc. This line of links totally dominates short comments. Perhaps small, unobtrusive icons would be in order?
Looks OK at my Firefox (1.0.4, Windows)
It would be nice to be able to select one "thread" (i.e, a post and its replies) and view them together, since they're now linked in the system anyway.
Congratulations for the improvement in the site, OSNews team
^bump. that was my first thought as well, very intrusive.
Do not replace text with icons. My brain is much faster with decoding words than it is with decoding icons.
However moving the links to the side of the comment and/or increase the padding (mostly vertikal) in the comment box. Would certainly help.
