Well, is there any hope/chance/wish/intent/plan to upate the forums?
Not really, plenty of work has been done to them already, and I already explained a complete replacement by another system is out of the question.

Maybe I'm just too much of a dinosaur for my own good, but I find the inability to quickly view threaded discussions, at least without loading the entire page over and over and over , extremely tiresome.

Then again, if "flat" posting is that popular or this is just a site to shout out some random message, let me know.
Common forum systems like phpBB and vBulletin offer only flat views, the default (ascending timestamps) equating Flat (Oldest First) here. Threads view is a bonus here, but not a very practical one indeed, so yeah, maybe you are a dinosaur for using it. And Threads view with full posts is not practical either.

Something like Shacknews or Slashdot threading is way beyond my available time, and perhaps my capabilities too. ISTR Shack's comments were rewritten from scratch several times in the past decade...

P.S. Invalid avatar type: not an actual PJPG image.
You tried just before I made another necessary tweak. Please try again, and sorry about the hassle, I obviously hadn't done my MIME homework.
