in reply to RFC: Eliminate the "Offer Your Reply" links

Has this been a problem? Most cases of similar replies come from two people composing answers at the same time.

Update: Oops, I thought you were referring to the "Comment on" link at the top of the comments. I got confused since "Offer your reply" currently appears next to "Comment on". I'm all for removing the link from the section pages.

    I sometimes see similar replies hours apart. I think the "Offer your reply" link feature causes people to inadvertently ignore previous replies. I think modifying the existing link will help reduce similar replies.
