Summary

Disqus recently announced it would begin collapsing replies in discussion threads after six or more replies. If, like thousands of other Disqus users, this new “feature” bugs you, then Disqus Auto Expander is here to save your sanity! It automatically detects collapsed replies and expands them when they come into view. It also automatically expands the link that hides "new" replies (those that come in while you are viewing the discussion), and long posts and embedded media (which Disqus cuts off with a "see more" link).

Easy to use (no configuration needed, although you can change the options if you want to), fast and efficient, Disqus Auto Expand does not slow down your browsing experience. In fact, it speeds it up since you don’t have to spend time clicking links to view the whole discussion.

User reviews
The selection to expand an entire large comment section does not currently work properly. If I manually expand such a section using page-down and 'Load More Comments" I get far more comments displayed. By large I mean 1000+ comments, and displayed oldest first/top.
