You like it one way, but someone else likes it another. For those who prefer the threaded view, we have things set to their style of preference. For those who like topical views as their default, we have it set another.
Now that you know the way you like it, you can set it exactly the way you prefer. That is the point of our mechanism.
But it seems to me that # of replies, and date of last reply are pretty obvious (and maybe even of no consequence?) when we are addressing the subject of unanswered posts.
