Benefits

The advantage of hierarchical threaded view that they allow the reader rapid assessment of the overall structure of conversation: who exactly is: to whom. As such it is very useful in situations involving extensive negotiations and discussions, such as teleconferencing. Another advantage is that the responses should be made to specific positions; they were also to specific individuals.

Disadvantages

A disadvantage of hierarchical over flat threading is an increasing degree of complexity, web chat and comment system, by comparison, the junior and accessible to a broad audience, and how such hierarchical Threading only recently become mainstream in these areas. It is not always so: when users are able to choose their own display mode, the hierarchical structure can be easily broken and unusable: Flat Community Threading your answer to add the last message by default, no matter what actually answered. This is a major disadvantage of the hierarchical view mode at any forum that can be viewed with a flat screen
