Suggestion: Display comments under 'View Comments' button

I would like to suggest an addition to the Comments display option.

Display the comments behind a [View Comments] button and lazy load the comments list on click of the button.

The reason behind the suggestion is, Google takes the post content + comments section content as the overall ranking factor and since thread discussions/comments aren't always productive it does harm to the original content in such cases. Hiding them behind a button helps combating this issue and since they aren't displayed, lazy loading them on demand improves the page speed scores.

I'd love to see this feature too as I've found that comment threads can sometimes load too much extra content.

Full quote messages, videos, images—it can easily be more HTML than the post content on longer conversations. I see the best implementation to include:

- Lazy load when #forum-comments div is scrolled to
- Option to only load when "view comments" button is clicked, as per your suggestion
