PSA Public Service Announcement: "Thread Drift"

Thread drift

TD can attack any forum. It affects the young and old a like. It is estimated that 43.7% of all OP have been a victim of TD. TD will increase the noise and static of any forum detracting from it quality. Interesting and informative posts become lost in the noise as the subject matter is overshadowed by an array of different and non related topics. Researchers have been working with great effort but have yet to find a cure. Only with great efforts can the destructive power of TD be overcome. Help put an end to TD and think before you click.

Thanks for the reminder, Laz.

I could spend all day splitting OT discussions off into new threads.

I don't, but it still bugs me!

No, a new small car line from Fiat marketed through Chrysler. The cars will be called "Dodgers" because they are so light and numble that they can weave and bob through traffic.
