Most efficient one

I'm another thread mode viewer. Doesn't matter to me if it's default or not. What difference does it make?

Well I explained why it's a problem, and the fact is that lots of people are not aware there is a conventional way of viewing the threads - they simply assume the default threaded view is all there is.

Your explanation does not describe a problem and does not make sense. What you are saying is happening in threaded view is the same thing that happens in flat view.

The threaded view is inefficient. It encourages people to ask the same questions over again and it can mean valuable contributions are not read or responded to, which in turn discourages posting.

It might be inefficient for you but in thread view, I can tell at a glance of a thread, which messages I have not read. You can't do that in flat view.

Don't try to defend one or the other to me. And stop assuming that your choice is the most efficient one. Everyone's choice is the most efficient one.
