[VANITY] The Thread Of Hijacked Threads
N/A | 10 May 2006 | kevkrom

Posted on 05/09/2006 9:52:39 AM PDT by kevkrom

Single-issue people.

They're out there... on every thread. No matter what the topic, they try to link it to their pet issue in some way, shape, or form.

They are... The Thread Hijackers™.

While little can be done to stop them, and it is probably best to ignore them, I find it much, much more fun to mock them. Sure, being passionate about an issue you care about is a good thing, but thread hijacking is annoying and, to be honest, turns off people who might otherwise agree with you.

So, on to the mocking.

I'd like to coin the term "H-score" to indicate the number of posts on a thread before someone tries to hijack it with the issue du jour. For example, if the attempt occurs on response #5, the thread has an "H-score" of 5.

What I propose is that when hijacking offenses occur, that they be documented here in the following form:

Thread: Thread title and link
H-Score: Post # on thread containing the offense (first per thread only)
Offender: Screen name of offending poster
Severity: Scale of 1 (low) to 5 (high) on how off-topic the comment is
My Comments: Optional, use to justify severity or just general mockery of offender

Perioidcally, I will go through the nominees and post finalists (for subjective awards) and winners (for non-subjective awards) in the following categories (subject to change at any time):

The issue du jour changes over time. At one time, it was Terri Schiavo. As of the time of this posting, it is illegal immigration. Note that ridicule on this thread is not to be taken as argument over any poster's position, but rather their methods and bloody single-mindedness.

So, for now, nominations will be taken for threads hijacked by "illegal immigration/border control" single-issue folks. Watch this space for any changes.

In the spirit of this thread, I'd like to ask that posters please refrain from going off-topic. Please limit your postings to nominations of hijacking offenses and discussions of those nominations and any "awards" granted.

Not to single out anyone in particular, I'll start the ball rolling with a moderate offense:

Thread: Bush 'No Gourmet'
H-Score: 7
Offender: Kjobs
Severity: 2.5
My Comments: Topic was former white house chef, comment was marginally funny though

I can't believe you're posting about hijacked threads when there are illegal foreign invaders from Mexico hijacking America.

The progression (regression?) is "immigration" to "Terri Schiavo" to "Elian Gonzalez" to "intelligent design" to the "Civil War." At least that's how I see it.

Well, I don't have to tell you, we expected that sumbitch to light up like a Christmas tree and flat-out walk the dog. But it didn't. Turns out the new orange shag carpet I'd put on the floor was so thick it was keeping the cool "barefoot" gas pedal I'd installed from going all the way down.

Typical Bushbot. A vanity thread just to mock those who don't want to drink the RINO kool-aide.

What about Bots who brook no criticism of Bush or the GOP and come to any thread and take over.

We all know who the 20-30 prolific posters who do that 27/7 night after night are. (do they ever sleep, go to the potty or have sex?)

Do you consider them thread hijackers or saviors..lol
