Thread hijacking

Did you ever have a thread that you like get taken over by somebody? There was a thread I liked alot but one person pretty much has taken over. I have to scroll thru a page of those posts to get to anything else and almost nobody else posts there anymore.

I don't want to hurt somebody's feelings. I think the person means well.

I hope you aren't talking about ME!

I've been known to post a few wacky things that could send a thread on a weird tangent. I hope all the threads have been brought back to topic though, either by me or someone else.


But, to answer your question, Yes. I participated on a nice long thread years ago. It was a great, feel good thread. Everyone said they looked forward to reading it or posting on it. But, one poster turned it into her own personal "Dear Abby," thread, asking for advice constantly to feel good - for the moment. But later admitting she never really did any of the suggestions by others to really change her situation(s.) Nor did she ever post good stuff for others. I and others eventually stopped posting on the thread. Too bad.

A couple of times people tried resurrecting it. I don't even think that poster is on the DIS anymore. But, if she was subscribed to the thread and it gets resurrected, she might come back and try to suck the life out of the thread again. I'm not interested in being used by a human vacuum.

There was a thread or two that I liked to read but stopped because it was like they made it all about them. A shame because it was a good thread. But I guess that's how some people are.

Does anyone have any recommendations for a good cruise line to take with older teenagers?

Nope, not that. But I would love it if someone would post tons of links on a post about a popular tv show instead of just talking about this week's show.

How can you not notice that nobody posts anymore to talk about the show. And starting another thread just seems rude.

Can't you just bring the thread back on track by talking about what happened on the current week's show? I would think other people who've seen the most recent episode would also respond.

I participate on a few TV show threads. As stated before, sometimes we go off track, talking about costumes, clothing, the food, the actors in real life, instead of their characters, tabloid reports, etc. But, once a new episode airs, it's back on track talking about the show.

Sometimes you have to be pro-active to get the thread back on track, especially if it is one a lot of people liked. But, once someone posts about the episode, other people chime in.

You can add them to your ignore list, that way their posts won't display on the thread, and you can just read what you want. Not sure how to get the thread back on track, but at least you won't have to scroll a lot!

Click their user name. Click View Public Profle

Then there is an option in the blue bar "User Lists" with a little down arrow. Click that.

Select Add to Ignore List
