    Question Which forum display mode do you prefer?

    Currently the forum display default mode is "linear". Two other options that you can switch to while viewing a thread OR you can set permanently in your user settings are "hybrid" and "threaded". I'm just curious which you folks like better?

I find for the technique that I employ, I am much much slower using the other display methods (threaded and hybrid). To me the slowness that those (threaded and hybrid) impose is the same as the slowness I encounter when trying to use NNTP.

    Linear by default for speed (reading), and Hybrid when the threading isn't obvious. Having the alternatives is useful.
