Allow comments to be "linked" together

Would love the ability to link, or connect, comments to one another.

Example use-case:
Often, when reviewing my peers’ work, I’ll find an issue that appears on several (or possible even all) screens within a given page in their file. Usually it’s self-explanatory to apply the comment/feedback in one place to all other instances of the same issue but that’s not always the case.
Or the repeating offense may appear on Screen 1 but not again until Screen 47 so it may not be as easy to associate the issues as being the same thing.

Current workaround:
There is the ability to copy a comment’s link and paste that into other comments, thus linking them. This works ok but often it’s a pain to have to go and find the initial comment I’d like to link to.

Benefit:
Linking comments together would create “threads” or “groups” of related comments, therefore making it easier to duplicate/repeat feedback.
Another feature of this could be to add visual cues for linked comments. For example, when viewing a comment that is linked to another, there could be something akin to prototype noodles leading me to the connections.
It’d also be natural to see, somewhere within the comment bubble, a count of how many “connections” the comment has.

Thanks for the feedback, @Giblette_Ethan_M !

We’ll pass this onto the team for consideration.
