    It is not the same type of formality, but it is there.

    In mailing lists you can make a double post, here one is deleted. Or you
    can post to two lists; here that is considered impolite and one is closed.

    In mail lists a reply to a post can happen separated from the thread
    because the mail client broke something. This is very rare here: but it
    can happen when a thread is moved, but someone replies via nntp before
    reading the move warning.

    In mail lists one can create a seemingly new post, which in fact is a
    reply to an old post in the thread: this is called "thread hijacking".
    Here people can tag a question to an old thread thinking that it is is
    the same problem, but we frown and tell him to post a new thread instead.

    Of course there is formality here, and it it is enforced. On mail lists
    this is more difficult to do. There are moderated mail lists, but they
    are not that common: someone would have to read every post before they
    are accepted. Once mail is sent, the list admin can not remove it
    (except from the archive). On a forum, posts can be removed after being
    published.

    In mail lists, people want posters to respect the threading, because if
    you don't it is almost impossible to track answers: so they can get
    nasty with people not respecting those rules. Here it is impossible to
    post a reply outside of the thread it is answering to, so that is not a
    problem. There is a minor problem in that answers can be made on a
    different branch of the same thread: this is confusing in very long threads.

    Erik, please note:
    - the different time-zones we're in
    - it's a weekend, and more: yesterday was Mothersday
    - we're all volunteers, doing what we do in the forums in our spare time, where most of us have families and so on.

    Not this one I've no idea about other people.

    FWIW, I try to treat forums pretty much the same as mail lists. If
    you're replying, always quote the context for your reply. It avoids
    ambiguity and, on forums where posts can be edited, it avoids later
    troll damage.

    No? Then what sort method do you use? :-o

    If I sort by date, flat, all threads are mixed, I do not get all the
    posts of a single thread connected. I can not know what threads I'm
    watching, unless I happen to remember the subject lines.

    Absolutely.

    Although this is the only forum in which I participate, due to others
    not having nntp gateway.

    Otherwise, I post once or twice to ask a question, then I disappear.

    Respect for the threading is the difference I was mainly thinking of, including branches.

    There is a minor problem in that answers can be made on a
    different branch of the same thread: this is confusing in very long threads.
    Yes, and more difficult in Linear mode, but less of a problem with the choice limited to "reply to thread" or "reply with quote". With no quote, the post adds to the trunk as a potential branch point or "going nowhere".
