Or the Westerfield(?) trial, the one where the creepy old engineer got convicted for molesting and killing the daughter of a bunch swingers in San Diego -- those threads were daily weenie roasts.

It's my thread, I get to choose whom to mock. If you want to mock someone else, start your own thread.

Nyaaaaa!

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?)

LOL!!! I don't see how they can since they never leave the computer....:)

The Elian flame wars may have been pretty hot, but there was no topic like Terri Schiavo to generate thread hijackings IMHO. The "H-score" averaged 2 to 5 for EVERY thread on FR for a couple of months.

Queue TV Game Show Host with bad toupee, overly-bleached teeth and pancake makeup.

It's time yet again to spin the wheel for today's talking point to try and shut out legitimate criticism over Bush's guest worker proposal. What phrases do we have on the wheel today, Harry?

Queue announcer

Well, Larry, today our contestant has the following phrases on the wheel:

Unappeasable!

DU Plant!

Border Troll!

Who Elected Tancredo President?

Thread Hijacker!

Extremist!

BushBash!

Wants Dems to Win!

And new on the wheel today, "Being Spun by the Liberal Media!

Queue talk show host

Thanks, Harry!OK, today's contestant is a long time FR poster who thinks that we should support Bush's guest worker proposal despite the problems such programs have caused in Europe, because, hey, he said he wanted such a program in the 2004 elections and he won the election!

Now, give the wheel a good spin here!

Clickclickclickclick click click .... click ...... click .... click!

Congratulations! Today we will go with Thread Hijacking! Who cares if the debate over illegal immigration is the most significant debate nowadays? We need quiet threads with no talk of such matters! Any discussion of immigration on any thread not directly dealing with immigration will be shouted down and might just be removed!

Tune in again tomorrow when we add yet another new phrase to our litany of methods for shutting down debate. Will it be "It's not Bush's fault, even though he's president?" or will it be "You must want Pelosi to be Speaker!"

What's that, Lassie? You say aliens from another planet have Timmie tied-up in a cabin and are-----probing him?
And the script calls for bank robbers, not aliens?
And Ay Rand was pretentious and wordy, and, and . . . what's that girl? Timmie's `Mom' has left the show for `Lost in Space'?
What else? the Roosians have a satellite, Sputnik?
And you know what the `Holy Grail' really is? Keep going girl!

The beauty of the current scheme is that the hijackers usually strike early. Besides, context is useful when deciding how great the offense is.

Let me ask you something. Can you define what Tread Hijacking IS?

The reason I ask is because - I have to admit - I am overwhelmed in information!... really.. it's like my brain can not absorb anymore. I am one of those who like to participate in FR (I have my reasons), but I confess that I have not taken the time to read every single rule in FR (like I don't read any "do you agree" before joining something online (forums, downloading software, etc). Apparently I am already braking rules by publishing stuff in the wrong places. I also noticed one day in a Rush Limbaugh forum/thread, I was not welcome cause they did not like what I was saying..Which is FINE by me! :) so I left. And now you mention this subject

So please clarify for me (and others) what exactly is what you are talking about? because I am not the kind of person to get myself where I am not wanted.. so please explain.

I remember well... this concept was hatched back then, as those of us sick of "All Terri, all the time" hid out on another thread and pointed out "T-scores" ("T" for Terri) on other threads.

I actually remember a "1", where the original poster somehow managed to link a completely unrelated article to the whole situation.
