Before God beings an illness he provide the remedy. I mention this, because I've recently learned that solutions exist for many of the JS-Kit afflictions documented on a previous post.
1) On mobile, the commenting system is as slow as water running uphill.
Solution: You can comment by email. Just allow the system to notify you when someone comments, hit reply to the message and your comment posts!
2) Threaded comments are an abomination
Solution If you're reading comments via email, this is easier to manage
3) I can't figure out how to search the comments. Seems impossible
Solution: None. It is impossible. However, searching you mail is a breeze. See above. (Starting to see where this is going?)
Upshot: Your DovBear commenting experience is much nicer if you respond to comments via email.
