It really is impractical to have the comment macro insert newer comments up below the comment bar. What will happen now that you've reordered the comments and someone else comes along and uses the comment bar is that the comment will be placed at the end of the page and the comments won't be in any kind of chronological order. I recommend, then, that you put the page back as it was. —WilliamLewis

Though you're right that there are two ways in which comments can be read, and each has its benefits (and if you asked a bunch of people which they'd prefer, you'd get different answers). In the end the current wiki macro only supports a single model: oldest-first. So I'm going to go ahead and revert your change before someone else adds a comment throwing things further out of wack. —WesHardaker
