Thread Topic "Mission Creep"

Anyone else notice it.

When you read the last post and you can't tell what the Thread was originally about.

Meh. Sometimes going off-topic gets you into very interesting exchanges. It happens often on another forum that I frequent and many people enjoy the banter that organically evolves.

...Though some people also express their annoyance when this happens, regarding it as a disservice to the original poster; I agree that it would be nice for (and courteous to) the original poster if occasional thread hijacks get pulled back with actual responses to the original post.

... and I thought this was a thread about the pervert in Mission, BC who walks around with mirrors on the toes of his boots...!

Yes. Guilty as charged. I am notorious for this.

I will endeavor to cease this behavior.

What I was fishing for was the thread/threads he's saying have been derailed. I know it happens, we seem to discuss it regularly. I agree that certain threads, like how-to's in the Tech section should stay pretty tight to the topic, but most conversations (which is what a forum is all about right?), stray off topic from time to time. One thing leads to another. Conversations ebb & flow. It happens.

Personally I think we should get back to talking about storing guns under the seat!

Hey Mursili what tires would you run with a Luger under the seat, just wondering?

Watermelon must have seeds if it's good watermelon.

Nice pics Kiwi41!

OK, so how many melons could I grow in a 10' x 10' patch? When should I plant? Where's the best place to get seeds? Should I start a new thread?

I knew something didn't smell right about you.....


Hahaha!! They play tonight!

Too bad you're in Austin, we could watch it together, that way when the Spurs destroy the Mavs you could apologize in person...

Really?

Actually, there's a good chance of that since Nowitski's got the knee issue. Hard to play without him.

But, and I say this with all the love I can muster, Tim "What? Me? Foul?" Duncan will ultimately roll "barbarian" on his 20-sided dice and come up short someday. You watch.

I respect the Spurs. I really do. But I have to hate them.

Sweet justice would be if Nowitski started dating Eva Longoria...
