      You should have used the print option on the page, not the browser. When you print form the browser it can break up the page into sections and print all the comments. When you use the print option on the page it formats it to one page. This is true on most recipe sites, otherwise you have 1 page of the recipe, 3 pages of advertisements, and another 20 of comments.
