I'm being shown threaded mode for some reason, while my preferences say otherwise.

[edit: Okay, it looks like I can change it.]

But still, threaded mode on by default is a bad idea. Threaded discussion structures are a bad idea in general; they only got created in the first place because of technical considerations in the design of Usenet. They're only useful for loooooong threads, such as the ones on Slashdot (and we know how brainless the quality of discussion is there).
