Many chatrooms become unusable due to multiple simultaneous conversations, forcing the conversation toward the lowest common denominator and attention-grabbing interrupts. A program could intelligently determine which messages are replying to which thread, and thus display multiple simultaneous conversations separately, within a single chat room and with a single text entry box for the user. Comments gaining more replies would gain additional space, while ignored off-topic comments would be quickly hidden. This would enable chatrooms to naturally and automatically fractally segment.
