Too many comments - How to manage them? (4 posts)

    There's a post on my site that has a life of its own, spawning almost 300 comments.
    Because there are so many comments the page it often times out when trying to load (depending on the current traffic I'm getting). I don't want to increase my php execution time.
    Is there any code or plugins available to split a post up into one or more pages, say 50 comments per page, with a "Next 50 comments" link at the bottom, or something?
    Thanks

    I haven't ever seen such a request here ..... and to save another comment - why on earth isn't Angus Young on that list ?!?!

    Haha - EVERYONE who's EVER played guitar seems to be mentioned at some point in the comments, including Angus (lots of times for him).

    An update: there are now over 1200 comments for that post (up from the 300 I posted above).

    Note that the original URL for it has changed.

    One of these days I'll HAVE to disable comments for that post, or something.
