I'm not suggesting abolishing threaded view merely not making it the default. I believe a majority of posters aren't aware they can view the forum in flat view. It is after all the method used almost everywhere else on the web as archiebald points out above.

You are right. Almost everywhere on the web uses flat view for forums. However, I'm not using THOSE forums, because I can never see who replied to whom, and the whole experience becomes an increasingly pointless muddle...

.... especially as so many posters neglect to use quoted text, and the context of new posts becomes more and more obscure....

.... which happens because discussions become branched regardless of whether they are presented threaded, or not.

Obviously, since these forums are so popular, the presentation in threaded form can be no great disincentive...

.... and may actually be one of the attractions.... as in my case.

Therefore, I suggest you stop moaning, and be very grateful you've got a choice.

Incidentally your rudeness is unsolicited and not welcome.

Soenda was not in the least rude. Just very clear. The lady is notably clear in her thinking.
