This site needs to improve it's reply system.

I find it hard to read message and what is in reply to what, it taxes my energy each time lol. Why post the whole (updated) conversation each time per reply? Why not just post what this message is in-reply-to? It's easier to read completes the ultimate goal of replying to a particular message.

Suggestions: replying to one message at a time instead of posting the full conversation between the two, improve clarity by making coloured distinctions between in-reply-to and actual message.

Thoughts?

Why not? Ideas not impactful? Not a serious problem? Lacking resources to implement solution?

Because they're too busy not caring about the site.
