Ran into a few instances of Thread Hijacking today. Not sure if the term is clear–what I mean is if one person posts a question in a forum starting a new thread and then another person posts a new question as a response in the same thread. Is anyone else bothered by this or is it just me?
We end up with two different questions in the same thread and two different conversations intermingled. Intermingling is nice in the real world–especially for those of us computer geeks held up in basement offices that look more like NASA than my real NASA office–but for forum threads, intermingling is bad.
It’d be easier to get answers to your question is you post it as a new question as opposed to a response to an existing question. It’s more curteous to the original poster and to everyone participating.
