When more than one discussion takes place (on a mailing list, for example), they can interfere with each other. When you read list messages chronologically, you have to jump between discussions.
This is where threading can help. It groups messages that belong to one discussion or thread and allows you to read them in their logical rather than a pure chronological order.
