Thoughts?

Is there any way to implement something where it's very obvious which post is in response to what once nest gets all janky?

The only thing I can think of is maybe have the post header reference the first sentence of what it's in reply to, instead of everything defaulting to "Re: [thread title]", excluding of course posts actually directed toward the OP.

Is this doable and are there pitfalls to that method? Nobody uses the subject line for replies save for DrakeStraw and MMC2.

In the "broad flat" format there is an option to display a quoted version of the parent post in each child post (though this isn't done for posts directly responding to the original post of the thread). The other formats could be given this option.

I've been thinking that it would be nice to be able to freeze the OP above all the replies. Some complain that posters here stray from the OP topic.

I'd also rather that the first visible post be the newest unread post rather than the newest one. It's a waste of time scrolling back through all those  n e w  indicators.

Re: Thoughts?

You should try the Broad Flat Format. It automatically quotes the post you are replying to. There are some exceptions like the OP and legacy posts. I've been altering the subject line a lot less often since I started using it because that line doesn't show on replies.
