Thread Hijacking & Ignore button

Just like to say I really enjoyed this thread and the comradery that many members have. I know a few of us are very tolerate while others aren’t. One big PEEVE, I been having which seems to me asof lately, there has been a TON of ‘thread hijacking’ with buddy padding SPAM.

A guy asked a honest question related to the thread and five members chime in on one stupid comment. I wish there was an ignore button again. Like one was about XX flashlight, then 5 members go member XX is alive & well. WTF does that have to do with the thread? Seriously use PM for your relationships, instead of spamming threads?

Examples: http://budgetlightforum.com/node/18459 stitches, yea very good troll analogy?

Feilox, the so called derailing is part of the charm that makes this place great if you ask me. The thing is, the issue/question in the OP always usually gets a serious answer before the comedy starts, so really, where is the harm? The OP gets what he/she came for and some smiles are shared. It’s win-win if you ask me.

fidem, prae caeteris omnibus praeter honestatem

 

 

Don't be confused, my Username has been changed from "Cone" to "T.H.Cone".  I'm still the same clown.

Since it was me that terminally, totally and completely derailed that thread, I’d like to offer my solemn, sincere and heart felt apologies for ruining an important post.

I’d like to, but I’m not going to. Silly

Seriously, lighten up! Sb didn’t seem to mind the unintentional trolling, it didn’t I feel detract from the thread, a thread that went up at the start of the month by the way, your moaning about it now?

As cone said, whilst we can derail threads better than leaves on a British train line, no-one EVER stuffs up someone’s problem before the problem has been dealt with. To be fair, sometimes the resulting conversation nets further help as more join in.

Would you prefer it if threads ran :-

“i need an 18650 edc”

End of thread?

That strikes me as a little boring don’t you think? :~

Seriously! I wanna be sure I know exactly what it is so I don’t do it.

Have no interest in waking up and looking in the mirror and seeing a da*# Troll!

Why is it that on the internet, there’s so many things one is supposed to inherently know without explanation? Maybe I started to late.

Hey Gords, pass the biscuits will ya? Scaru, you done with the butter?

Trolling would appear to be treating the place and people present as friends in a pub, rather than anonymous bots on a computer network.

Fancy, using a technical forum as a social network! Flat Stare

I was once thought to be quite a troll

But threadjacking was not my true goal

I just like to smile

Every once in a while

They say humor is good for the soul

Laughing

Sometimes I put a little extra peanut butter on my crackers…. just because I really like peanut butter.
Oh, and it was really cold this morning, like -19C (that’s -2F). I put an extra stick of wood on the fire.
Adding that little bit extra makes everything better.

I like cinnamon Cheerios, I ate them during a trip to the US, but I can only find honey Cheerios here in Spain. How can I buy them?

Mooooooo

With Welch’s on warm, lightly toasted bread. Mmmmm. If you want good clean Internet, read one of my build threads. Nice and tidy with maybe 6 replies in a month and no trolls. Heeere, trolly, trolly, trolly.

Three Tanna leaves to give him life, nine to give him movement. But what if he eats the whole bag?

I go for the just peanuts stuff… the one that you need a jackhammer to break up enough to get out of the jar. Then you need to warm it up so it’s soft, but not too much or it will run everywhere.

What was the OP topic again? Who cares, this is fun Big Smile
