    What is thread hijacking?

    To me it means when someone has started a thread about a particular
    topic and someone else leads it into a discussion not really pertaining
    to the thread topic. Sometimes the off topic discussion is somewhat
    related but really should have a thread of it's own.

    Why thread hijacking a bad thing? Maybe not to some but often times
    I find I am interested in the original topic thread but could really careless
    about the hijacked topic. But I keep checking back to see if someone has
    posted information about the original topic. This often waste a lot of time.

    I am sure I may have been guilty of thread hijacking but I will make a better
    effort in the future.
    I think the question any poster should ask before posting in an established thread is:

    "Is what I am about to post really belong in this thread or should I
    start a new thread."


    I may be the only one that feels this way but I think there may be a few
    others as I have seen references to thread hijacking.

    This post is just to hopefully raise the awareness thread hijacking. I'm
    sure many do not intend to hijack threads so a little awareness may
    help in this matter.


    (it would be a nice feature of this board software if moderators could
    easily move a post to a new thread leaving a link saying something like

    Move to related topic thread )

    This thread reminds me of the fact that we should be patient with Laurence Maroney. ;)

    Good point. Let's all try to stay on point.

    Back on topic, does anyone know where to get replacement porch windows? Not the double-hung kind but the removeable panels.
