Today's noob is tomorrow's vet. Really, the best way to learn the culture of a board is to jump in. If someone is being disruptive, maybe a PM would be appropriate, or ask a moderator to send a suggestion. I know that I wouldn't be offended

Agh, it isn't me is it?

Sorry Marm.....I too am guilty of this sometimes. I will try my best to keep this in mind but I'm afraid I may slip every so often so please forgive me in advance. But I will try my best to PM instead.

Please, y'all! I really didn't mean for this to turn into a major topic, lol! Was just doing some venting; I realize that there are times when we (notice the 'we' that includes me, too!) go off topic; what I was referring to was an entire thread being hijacked for chit-chat that could have been done via PM. Love and kisses to all!!!!!

You folks have no idea how much these boards mean to me; it really is one of my few places of sanity these days. Don't ever, every lose your humor, your creativity, your insightfullness - and your sense of family here!

I think I understand where you are coming from marm (and correct me if I am wrong). What i hink you are saying is that if there is a thread about olive oil that then turns into a thread about olives that then turns into a thread about olive trees then that is OK as long as the original question or comment was answered, but what is not OK is if the thread is about olive oil and two people start talking about the Red Sox game they saw the other night.

If that is what you are saying then I completely agree. Conversations here evolve and change as that is the nature of a conversation, but hijacking a thread is something different altogther.

Thanks for the reminder. We all could use it from time to time, myself included

I must admit I have been guilty on this front myself occasionally too and I don't mean to justfy my doing, I think it is okay to have just a little sidetracking now and then, as long as it is just for a few posts and it gets right back to the original subject.
If it completely veers off to something else and continues to go on in a different direction, the thread would be better split at an appropriate spot, but this shouldn't happen at a regular basis, we should redirect ourselves in any given thread after a bit of chit chat, back to the original topic.
