View Full Version : A small question regarding thread derailing

I was just wondering if it is possible, by definition, for someone to derail their own thread?

Take this thread for example:

http://offspring.com/forums/showthread.php?t=36813

I'm not entirely sure if that thread can be considered "derailed" considering what was going on in the first post and who posted it. Just curious. I'm not by any means trying to yell at CJ or BPB, although I'm sure it might seem that way. I can assure you, this was not my intention at all and I hope this thread doesn't turn into another flame war, because that would be silly.

Interesting question. Although, i suspect in this case the purpose of creating that was just another random/postcount thread.

Yeah, I figured as much, but suppose that wasn't the intended purpose of the thread. Like, if that were the case, would those posts have to be deleted or what?

Is it possible to derail your own thread? These questions keep me awake at night, such a dilemma.

I don't see why not. If you start a successful thread, then go in and try to derail it, then you are derailing it.

You are right.

I like how Thomas is so afraid of offending the most easily offended people on the BBS that he literally spends more time trying to explain that it's not a crack, than he does explaining his question.

Oh wait no I don't like that at all. What the fuck.

I just didn't want to start some long and nasty argument/flame war. Otherwise, I wouldn't care.

I don't think he's referring to you. Frankly, I don't think you can get offended at all, from what I've seen.

He's working at the moment. I'm his stay-at-home housewife.

Then post quality stuff and you'll be accepted here. Otherwise, be ready for a lot of hate coming your way for idiotic posting.

Oh come on, there would be no lemurs left if that were the case. I'm not even taking a swipe at you guys, that's just plain statistics.
