Things I Learnt
Setting comments to "disabled" stops any comments. Useful for locking new topics (eg announcements and stickies).
Setting comments to "read-only" in essence locks the topic - the comments still exist but no more can be added.
Read&Write is default - users can add comments.
There are two ways to reply to toopics - add new comment and reply.
Add New Comment comments on the original topic; the comments are unique and singular eg not linked to other comments.
Reply is used for replying to comments. If you delete a comment that has replies, you WILL DELETE THE REPLIES AS WELL.
Comments disabled will give a blank forum icon. Read&Write gives a blue pencil. I think orange is for hot topics. Still learning!
