Well I tried to find some weird correlation between the statistics of reddit posts. It was kind of boring but here were the results:
The correlation between most upvoted comment of a post and the upvotes is about 0.667.
The correlation between most upvoted comment of a post and comments on a post is about 0.832.
Essentially there are posts people want to comment on, and posts people don’t want to comment on. But once people decide to comment they are also likely to upvote at least on comment.
The most interesting things is that people seem to rate comments less when their are less comments and seem to rate much more when there are more comments.
