Description

There seems to be no meta bug for problems with the threaded view.

Note: I used the following search for finding the dependencies and sorted out a
few, so there might be missing or wrong bugs in the dependency list.

These deps need to be cleaned up. I recommend removing the duplicates from the list, probably the fixed, INCO/EXPIRED, and WFM as well, although probably not the WONTFIX. Several of the open bugs could use some internal triaging before cleaning the list up, as some of them appear to be dupes of one another, or fixed by proxy bug in other side, and at least a few are not threaded view issues at all.

The primary classes of bugs seem to be "threads don't work as expected when collapsed", "view is wrong", "XYZ configuration is wrong", and "watch threads aren't good enough" (there's even a meta for that). It is possible that we could just make metas for these classes and then remove all deps that fall under those classes, so this would become a sort of meta-meta bug.

There are also probably several bugs that are logically deps of this that are not actual deps, but I haven't looked for them, save the lone bug that a dep was duped on to.

Whatever course of action is taken (save ignoring the issue) would unfortunately be a very spammy one to people.
