Threaded Mode of Viewing and Reading ????

Since many people don't seem to reference the post they are referring to when commenting, is there a threaded mode like there use to be to figure out who or what post they are posting about or answering?

 

I cannot seem to find the (my) settings for a threaded mode anymore.  So if there is, how do I set my settings for it.

@GailL1   You can change the Settings for this by clicking My Settings in right upper side of community pages.  Once in Settings - go to Preferences - then Linear Settings.  Hopefully, this image helps:

My post question is directed to AARP - most likely the tech people.

Is the threaded mode anything like the use of the quote tab as I used above in an edited form?

NO - it is just a mode of viewing a conversation but it shows which post are responding to which post.  Some email programs do it or you can turn it on/off.  Many discussion boards use it.
