Unnecessary extra step
The tree list is given its own window - with scroll bar(s) - I personally think it is a bit ridiculous to show anything short of the entire list the first time it comes up (the list can be scrolled)...

If I'm understanding the question properly... you can change that setting in User CP / Options / Thread Display Options.

I am going to try "Linear" for a while - maybe I'll go back and try a different option later...
It is especially idiotic when "More replies below current depth..." turns into a single post entry...
the visitors setting is automatically set to the tree thing. get rid of it! i might be logged on when i usually come on here, but when i view it at college, it annoys me.Here's why Linux is easier than Windows:
Package Managers! Apt-Get and Portage (among others) allow users to install programs MUCH easier than Windows can.
Hardware Drivers. In SuSE, ALL the hardware is detected and installed automatically! How is this harder than Windows' constant disc changing and rebooting?
I don't mind so much having the option of displaying the "thread tree" window -- I just want the entire tree list to be present in the window --- good grief! --- it is IN A SCROLLING WINDOW -- it can't possibly hurt to have the whole tree list completely "unfolded" in that SCROLLING WINDOW -- (DUH!) -- it doesn't take up any extra space...
It is kind of useless anyway unless it can be made to "follow" you down a long list of posts (in linear mode) so that it is always visible (to be referenced). It is only really useful in the basic mode where you only see one post at a time. And even so -- in that mode I got tired of constantly scrolling the page down to set that window back to the same place it was every time I clicked on another post --- in that mode, the page needs to be positioned exactly where it was before clicking the next post to view - so that when it comes up, the "thread tree" window is exactly where it was before clicking...
