How to disable comments on comments

The threaded view of plone.app.discussion's comment item tends to look a bit confusing when there are many threads. Ons possible solution would be disallowing comments on comments, so you'd just get a flat list of items. This is similar to how many other commenting systems work (like Facebook and Twitter, for example).

Comments on comments can be disabled in the ZMI: go to 'portal_types' -> 'Discussion Item', uncheck "Allow Discussion".
