http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Talk:Article_feedback for example.

Indeed.

Currently, when a discussion page has lots of comments, it is common to find links like "Show 99 replies" all over the talk page. This means that the most relevant comments in a thread (the recent ones) cannot be found through CTRL+F, unless a user expand all topics manually.

So, it would be good idea to provide users some sort of
"Expand all comments on this page"
link.

PS: I found this bug when I was going to create a new one about this, inspired by the following comment on Village pump:

Column Prototype
This is a very early prototype of a persistent column. It is not expected to work yet, and leaving it open will activate other new features which will break things. Press "\" (backslash) on your keyboard to close it now.
