comment inflation rate

 the rate of which comments are inflated. Number of total comments divided by number of unique ideas expressed in comments.  A higher rate of comment inflation means that there are many comments expressing the same idea(s), while a lower rate of comment inflation means that the idea(s) are expressed in fewer unique comments hence making each comment more unique and valuable.

John: "It's so annoying on facebook when thousands of people comment on a post saying the same thing. It's hard to find interesting comments since they're buried in there somewhere".
Joe: "I know.  Many facebook posts have such a high comment inflation rate!"

comment inflator

comment inflator or comment inflater
Is someone who instead of thumbing up or liking an existing comment, writes a comment that says the exact or similar thing as previous comment(s).

John while browsing the internet sees a comment that says: "That's so sad! :("
John then writes a comment that says: "That's sad!"
Joe writes a comment that says: ":("
Jen doesn't comment, instead she thumbs up or clicks on "like" for the very first comment.
John and Joe are both comment inflators. Jen is not a comment inflator.
