I do not agree also not sure if load more or just lazy loaded is best yet will have to wait to test that later, besides we have a jump to page feature which counters this and it will be a feature that will be configurable anyway.
Can you elaborate on why you think that "load more" is better than pagination? By "configurable" you mean that we'll be able to choose between the superior pagination and the "load more" crap in the settings?
Also, could it harm SEO by hiding content from bots?
If we'll be only left with a jump to page feature then it'd need a usability upgrade and a facelift to display the total number of pages.

That's good for navigation!
Why is it good and what's suddenly wrong with pagination?
Think of YouTube comments or IMDb reviews. Do you ever hit the "load more" button to see older discussion or reviews? Personally, I don't - and especially at YouTube's search results I always hope that the first top results are great otherwise I'm not going to scroll that much even if I'm really desperate! And how many times are you going to hit it before you become annoyed?
And what if you locate something that you'd like to revisit - perhaps to show it to someone else sitting next to you - but you didn't take the time to copy or bookmark? Press "load more" until you spot it, right? Instead of navigating to the specific page (i.e. depth) that you remember seeing it and maybe by checking on the dates of the latest replies because you happen to remember dates. Perhaps you'd prefer to hit a random page just to see the dates and then move backwards from there or try the page in the middle in a binary search manner. But I guess you prefer the sequential search for whatever reason.
I used to be excited about 3.3 and now I'm feeling like someone who is expecting a tasteless sequel. Because someone wants to remove smilies from PMs, another one wants to remove IP banning, now hanakin says no pagination but instead "load more", and I'm left wondering about what else is going to be missing from the final package whenever it arrives.
Just a loyal user's opinion and perspective guys...
