The problem is, OP, that you probably aren't seeing all the posts. If you are just viewing /nap/ through the /bant/ board, you don't see the green posts, the posts with second ids, or anything numberless. Together, those make up about 40-70 percent of /nap/, depending on the day. So conversation will appear disjointed and spastic, because you won't be getting the full picture.
I actually just flipped over to the /bant/ interface to make this post, and it's pretty funny how unintelligible /nap/ is like this.
