Can Confluence provide a report showing if comments "do not" have replies?

v3.0, I want to see if this capability is available as perhaps a plugin or some kind of configuration change. Thanks!

Mostly no.

But would it be possible to explain what is the usecase of this?

We would like to make sure that changes made to some important pages are commented and a reply of approval (As an example). To also see if comments are being addressed when it may have to do with content important to a busy page (another example).

Hope that makes sense.

You can get at this with an SQL query and the SQL plugin. Have a look at the 'content' table. There's a column PARENTCOMMENTID. I haven't dug into the exact query you'd want to construct, but add a comment if this seems like a solution and you get stuck with the SQL.

Be careful with the SQL plugin if you've got a big instance of Confluence, or a userbase that could go nuts with it! It's a powerful (and fantastic) plugin but can have scaling problems if you're users aren't thinking about performance.

You can use the Reporting Plugin to achieve it, but I'm not sure exactly what would be best for your use case. Who will be viewing the report, and would it be for specific users that haven't had a comment reply?
