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...

I rarely see this issue. The vast majority of people on other boards quote the person they're replying to.

You mean the vast majority in your experience... but that's not my experience.
That's why I made the point.

Whichever you prefer, that's fine, I can accept that.

(Not with much grace!)

However, as someone said, which I can't easily find now, because of this horrible software, I think it's a mistake to have the choice of both.

It just makes things a mess when you have some people using one or the other in the same thread.

Only if they are disorganised. Flat view encourages disorganisation.
