I'd rather have flat view removed as an option, so that those using it would stop posting their messages in the wrong place.

I'd rather have threaded view removed to stop all of those little chest-pounding side conversations that generally have nothing to do with the original post!

In threaded view those side conversations are easy to avoid, in flat view you're stuck with them. They won't go away.

I think that most of the people that use threaded view are not as internet chatboard savey as they like to think they are and can't handle change!

So stripping out information (message location in thread) to simplify viewing for people who can't be bothered to click next, because maybe they have a slow internet connection, makes them more savvy?

After all . . . this is 2011 . . . not 1981!

I suppose you don't put files in separate folders either, just throw them all in the root so you can see them all at once?
