Time format of comment form

Instead of displaying exact time (Example: 5:45 am) after server converts it, why not just give the duration of how long ago the comment was made. I mean why don't we give a feature probably like on the support forum of WordPress where it shows how long ago the comment was made instead of time. For example "This comment was commented '5 Hours Ago'". This will never create any sort of confusion regarding when the comment was made.

Hi @kafleg.

Thank you for taking the time to create your first ticket.

A function for your suggestion already exists: human_time_diff()

It's up to the theme author to use it when displaying comments.
