RE: Hijacking threads
Who the heck is idioteye? And where is that thread?

Maybe he is one of those darn teenagers who won't get off the lawn when you tell them. Tongue

You just gotta re-rail.

RE: Hijacking threads
If all I have to offer is smart ass comments, I usually wait until the thread at hand seems to be tapering off. I try not to be the one who interrupts a good stream of... wait, what?

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

Taking your mod powers a bit too far, eh?

It's the norm around here. Some of us, or at least one of us, thinks it's a good test of the mettle of a thread. If it's worth its weight in salt, the thread will rerail. If it doesn't, well then it wasn't worth its weight in salt. Rerailing is easy. Skip to the last relevant post and reply to that. Skipping all the irrelevant bullshit posts in between, well that does admittedly take some practice but it ain't hard. If this is the thread you are referring to, The Unification of God, it does look like a worthwhile thread to rerail. So just rerail it and ignore the fucking comments from the peanut gallery, including Girly's.

Not sure why, but that makes me happy.

All information in the above post is my own opinion and will not
necessarily be logically sound or conform to reality as we know it.

You have been warned. Tongue

RE: Hijacking threads
Is it in poor taste that I attempt to hijack this thread with my box knife & fly it into the World News section of the forum?

RE: Hijacking threads
That particular derail was a bit frustrating. I propose that a thread is started called "Childeye's screwy definitions and terms and how he thinks they are relevant to any meaningful discussion".

Then anytime he posts his bullshit in the middle of a decent thread, it can automatically be moved into this thread. Drinking Beverage

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

No it wasn't. You guys do brief humor, and that's cool.
We're talking about the mess Childish made of the Unification of God thread, among others. I asked the mods to split off the hijacked part, so the original thread will stand. It was a legitimate and good OP.
