comment Undo History - Why limit it?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it's essentially a question about the technical reasons why undo is left out, not the UX reasons. It's sort of like asking why computers used to only have 16 colours. It wasn't because anyone thought 16 was better UX than 256 or 16 million. It was a technical choice or constraint.

comment Is showing single textarea at first then show other fields on comment form confusing?
Although this is a decent question at its root, right now you're essentially asking for opinions. As a result I'm putting it on hold, but if you improve the question to be less about what we think or feel about it, you can ask for it to be reopened.

comment Why are keyboard keys staggered?
@JonasDralle I'm not sure what's not clear here. You said "QWERTY is a horrible keyboard layout because it's designed to be inefficient". I simply said that it wasn't designed to be inefficient. It was designed to prevent key jamming via hand alternation, which doesn't necessarily make it inefficient. The focus here on the "…designed to be inefficient".

comment Why are keyboard keys staggered?
@JonasDralle Not really. One is saying that the goal was to slow down typing to prevent them getting stuck, while the other is saying that the goal was to alternate hands to prevent them getting stuck. keys that are far apart from each other on a mechanical keyboard are less likely to get stuck on each other, than closer keys. Alternating hands isn't a strategy to slow down typing, it's simply the best approach to minimising stuck keys. Many good layouts (Dvorak for example) focus on alternating hands, and they are designed specifically for speed.

comment Why are keyboard keys staggered?
@JonasDralle That is a commonly held, but erroneous belief. QWERTY was designed to prevent keys getting stuck, and so focused on alternating between left and right hands. I'm the last one to say that it's a great layout (I don't use it), but it was not designed to be inefficient. That may have been a consequence, but it was not a design goal.
