    For example,Kier or Mike creates a thread and many users will post in.Sometimes,the reader only concern what the thread creator said in this thread,so it's useful if we have the function for showing the posts by thread creator only[A button on the post may achieve this goal].

    It will make reader get the information effectively.

    No,they are different with my suggestion.

    The thread creator starts a topic and other users will post in,say 100 users will post in this thread.I need the function to show the posts by thread creator only.

    A starts a topic.

    I suggest to add a shortcut in this thread to show the posts by thread creator only.(Show the posts I marked as red.) Like below:
    A starts a topic.
    A quote C's reply and reply
    A quote D's reply and reply
    A reply
    A quote F's reply and reply

    I can see how this can be useful but it also kinda think it defeats the purpose of an discussion thread.

    Sure. I wonder how to guess what are thread-starter posts about when the thread is filtered this way.

    If there was a "search in thread" feature (suggested elsewhere), that would cover this use case. You could just search for posts in the thread by the user.

    The posts layout from searching is different from what I suggested.
