This is one of those “nice-to-have, wish-it-did” things that I keep forgetting to share with you.
Rather than have your blog post comments in one long list, how about having the option to reply to individual comments so that your reply shows below said comment?

We’ve been using the WordPress Thread Comment on a number of blogs for a while now, so know to trust it even though it’s not been updated for almost 2 years. And it does make any conversation easier to follow
Very simple to set up, from Plugins, Add New search for WordPress thread comment and then Install and Activate. That’s it.
Some comment handling plugins will include this already, so don’t be alarmed if your set up already allows for this.
