Thread Hi-jacking

yea it seems lately that i've been avoiding certain threads because they've been hi-jacked and its all of a sudden a completely different thread. i dont mind it being sidetracked for a little bit (im guilty myself), but a lot of times it would be dragged on on on for 2 or 3 or more pages. Then i don't even bother to look in the thread b/c i know it's not what it was started out to be. i dont know what the policy is, but a lot of good informative or interesting threads have been turned to nothing more than small chit chat that has nothing to do w/ the thread at all. and like i said, it drags on.

It happens, but feel free to bring any thread back on topic by driving the big ol' TWF bus back into the lane it was originally intended to be. Someone will follow.

I am thirsty for kool aid


























































LOL, just kidding. Thread jacking is a pretty common occurrence and not really against the rules unless it is the blatant post whoring/thread jacking variety as stated in the post whore rule. Just listen to pickle and bring the thread back on course.
