We need a way to see all of our comments + allow search engine crawlers

We need a way to see all of our comments and a way to get notified when there is a new reply to any of our comments. It is absurd that this great website that is The Verge doesn't have these simple features.

Also, is it possible to allow search engines like Google, Bing and Yahoo to crawl through the comments on The Verge? There are tens of thousands of interesting comments and none of them can be found by search engine.
