Hijacking threads
There seems to be a lot of threads being hijacked, as a relative newcomer I can't say whether this is a recent thing, or if it's been going on for a while.

But either way, surely to enter a thread and deliberately try to steer the discussion around to whatever you want to talk about, is a form of trolling?

If you wanna talk about your own topic, or argue your own point, start your own bloody thread...

And everyone else, please... don't feed the trolls. No

Thread derailment is the norm around here, it's just what we've come to associate this community with and it's what we love doing.

"derails" are supposed to be used when no one finds anything useful in the thread, or if the poster is a troll. Otherwise we usually show some respect for a good discussion.

I haven't read the thread that caused you to write this so I have no comment in specific, just in general.

RE: Hijacking threads
I wish to support Paranoidsam. He posited an interesting question that got hijacked by idioteye. It was a question I had opinions on and wished to relate them (I did to a certain extent). But his interesting question got lost in the noise. He has a legitimate complaint.

Nah, it's in the A&T section and we don't really post here. We just hijack threads in all the other sections. It's OK when we do it though, surely when I'm involved it counts as officially sanctioned activity? Big Grin

Best and worst of Ferdinand .....
Best
Ferdinand: We don't really say 'theist' in Alabama. Here, you're either a Christian, or you're from Afghanistan and we fucking hate you.
Worst
Ferdinand: Everyone from British is so, like, fucking retarded.
