    I'm actually not a fan of this, personally.

    If a comment includes any URLs, this pattern obscures the hover state that confirms your cursor is over a link, and not just normal text. If you were to misclick, then not only do you not open the link, but it disappears due to the comment collapsing, leaving you in a brief moment of confusion. Added to that, you can't quickly undo the action by simply clicking where your mouse is, either—if you were to do that, you'd likely end up collapsing another comment.

    Edit: I think you fixed this as I was typing up this response. Much better!
