11. I hadn't heard the term "OCTabot" until I read this thread
Your definition was interesting...and, I think, accurate.

Like you, I had noticed that some very informative threads were no sooner posted, and, "wham", they were hijacked. I was guilty of it in a thread last night as I was offended by the title of the thread - and, while this was very unusual for me, this, of course, is no excuse. However, I do hope that the hijacking we see on a regular basis in this forum will cease with the aid of this new function.

I am also noticing that non-OCT'ers do not seem to be nearly as bothered by the new function as their OCT counterparts (for instance, there is a post that proclaims that anyone using the function is either mentally or intellectually challenged...pretty strong sentiments, I'd say). Not sure why this is so, but, it does suggest to me that non-OCT'ers are more likely to want civil discourse and a build up of ideas as you indicated.
