All right. I just switched myself from flat mode to threaded, and here's the difference. Now I see, below the message I'm looking at, all its children (replies). I suppose I would see the parents, too. In other words, the whole thread of responses to one root message.

In flat mode, I just go from one message to the next in strict chronological order. In threaded mode, I go from one message to its first reply, then to the reply to that message, and so on. Threaded mode makes it easier to track who is responding to what; in some complex discussions that could be useful.
