Thread jacking somewhat related

I'm just curious but how did I end up looking at that thread? I definitely did not send myself there.

And does anyone else find these Michigan economic development corporation adds really annoying.

I walked away and mine started talking. I was somewhat alarmed because I was alone and it was obviously on this side of my locked door. . .

That only happens if you mouse over.

And I'm in Nashville

Yeah, it was just delayed. It took it maybe thirty seconds, or long enough for me to get to the bathroom, for it to spring up.

Then I was alarmed. It was probably aggravated by the fact I was using the bathroom. . .

But how did I end up in that hi-jacking thread? Moderator abilities to automatically redirect either everyone or individuals to a specific thread?

Just curious.

And so I don't have to test it is the automatic status update of master ecomodder the last one or is there anything above that?

That was question I had been sitting on for a while.

It is the last automatic status update. I tend to assume that after people post that much they'll either like the title or customize one,

And there was no automatic redirection, I don't even know if that's possible. Perhaps you accidentally clicked something? *shrug*

Its possible, but with this host it may not be easy at all. I'm going to gamble what happened was I followed the the link to a new post and double clicked or something or switched pages and clicked as IE decided it wanted to look at it.

It actually happens a surprising amount of the time as I am viewing and updating several pages at the same time.

Hence the reason I started using Opera, and auto-tab-update add-ons. I can't find any that work for firefox, but it would refresh all my tabs every X seconds. The only time I didn't really like this, is when I was checking out cached pages... and it would refresh to the non-cache page, which was usually not what I wanted.

I permit thread jacking in this thread. . .(its my thread I can do what with as I please ^_^, even if it means posting in less than decent clothing(My work jeans are pretty holey))

I use both Chrome and IE, but at the time I was using IE. I actually use whichever I click and thus forth have no pattern for what reason I pick this one or that one. Mostly it gets dictated if I am in a searching mood or if I am on to do the basics(IE is triggered to load this site, gmail, google and 2 others only one of the five is what I would term as productive.)

I autoload Gmail, this site, several game sites, a few electronics sites, some modding sites, a couple random things that were left from each time I logout.

About 22 tabs I have loaded at just about all times. And that's when I'm not particularly interested in anything. I don't recycle tabs, I just open more.

Moar, cuz moar!!!

So I see it is not just us Michiganders. I thought maybe some sort of spyware or web tracking put those ads on mine.

Yes I do find it annoying. I have been hearing the ads on the radio for years. It seems Jeff Daniels is the only one who wants to build in Michigan these days.
