Comment nesting needs to be an opt-in feature

FYI I still see infinite regression of nested comments causing all the problems I identified here: https://www.loomio.org/d/yFf7QjMX/thread-management-comment-nesting-direct-replies-forking-conversations

It's an anti-feature for most Loomio groups where I participate, see the recent thread management discussion in the OAE group: https://www.loomio.org/d/28SNCvkj/formatting-and-usage-of-threads-in-the-oae-group

IMHO it would be best turned off by default, with an option in 'Group Settings' to turn it on for groups who choose to use it. Speaking of which, is there a way for group coordinators to turn off nested comments across a whole group? I can't seem to find it in 'Group Settings'.

I'll be adding the group default setting as you suggest, when I can. It may be default depending on how it impacts display of votes in proposals.

I also believe that comment nesting should be an opt-in feature and/or that groups coordinators should be able to turn needed comments off across the whole group
