Comments on geeklists/blogs have pages. Can you display all the comments at once in order to do a search on them?

Not now due to a programming change to scroll comments.

In the olden days comments were on or off for the whole geeklist, eve though it was being displayed a page at a time. Then you could do what you now want to do.

You know that all the "pages" being displayed are built dynamically by database calls. I'm not sure exactly how the displayed page is being built by the underlying code. But the changes to only display some of the comments were made to cut down the server load.

The straight functional logic is hard enough to code. I think a lot of folks forget how much fiddling around has been done to manage the load on the servers to keep response time responsive. The server load work isn't a multiplicative factor in complexity but an exponential one.
