Threadjackers---
I have to say that a threadjacker is like an annoying mosquito that simply won't go away. No matter what you do it keeps buzzing until you lose control and flail madly in the air.

I tend to think a threadjacker sits near their computer day and night waiting for the opening to jack a thread for the most ridiculous reason.

Never mind the substance of the tread--- it can be a simple word, meaning, tone, whatever.... and instead of objecting just once in the thread, it becomes multiple posts until the original thread is diluted with their insane objection.

Responding to the threadjacker is equivalent to lighting up their crack pipe.... They feed on your response.

Threadjackers are masters of getting Op's locked.... seen it many times.

What to do about them--- not much.

It's just one of the many items you have to deal with in a community like DU.

12. Nothing wrong with Nuke Power...
Works Great!

We just need to build the plants on springs in case the Earth shakes a little...


And get NASA to build rockets cheap enough so we can blast the waste into the sun :)

14. I see a lot of amatuer threadjackers trying to be funny here. I'd like to see a pro weigh in.
A pro would jack the thread smoothly.

21. Threadjacking is a time-honored internet tradition and should be respected
and valued as such, yet you seem to want to devalue it. Why? are you trying to deny my free speech rights?

24. spot on
I thought the big repulsion, freak out, revoltion, factor was a hallmark of the conservative brain. Some seem to thive on being offended and then shaming the rest of us with their superior moral authority.

I say fuck ' em if they can't stay on the topic of the thread.

35. I once saw a gull at Navy Pier get an entire churro stuck in his gullet.
Until he finally coughed it up, he looked like the bird with the best posture in the world.

42. I'm REALLY fucking sick of the bullying.
You have no right to bully and harass people just because you don't like what they're saying. This thread is a callout of seabeyond, and it's nauseating that it's even been unlocked for THIS long. If you think that we should be allowed to use sexist language, then make your fucking logical argument for it--don't sit there as a member of a comfortable political majority, insulting and degrading a member of a minority who objected to an offensive word.

Threadjacking is NOTHING compared to the toxic verbal assault against women that I witnessed here today.

You should be ashamed of yourself.

45. Locking
This thread is a call out of Duer(s), and a continuation argument from another thread.

Thanks,
