Mod...Websl... I had to look that one up. Thanks for educating me on that one though, honestly! I understood the words but still don't understand the point to it. Trolling? Are they serious? Rhetorical? Internet Forums Thread hijacking in internet forum communication is the act of steering a discussion off-topic by discussing a subject entirely unrelated to the subject at hand. While this can be an intentional act of trolling, it is often accidental - caused by participants in the discussion responding to a throwaway remark, thus taking the thread off at a tangent to the original subject matter. The results often provoke a feeling of resentment from the author of the original post. Will I be given some kind of ransom if I did hijack the thread and gave it back unedited? Rhetorically speaking. Come on now, my time is way more important and valuable than that!!! P.S. What is the point to thread hijacking or trolling?
