@purplepolkadots:  ROFL. 

So, basically if you read something in one particular thread, and you have a similar question but different situation/POV or whatever – you can’t threadjack that same thread for an answer. That’s basically it. Hopefully other posters have more to contribute! 🙂

People get ideas from seeing other threads and instead of threadjacking all over their thread, they create a new thread to discuss their question.

So tempted to make a spinoff thread from this topic. 😛

But yeah, what everyone else said. I’ve made them because I don’t want to take the original thread off topic but I think there could be some fun discussion.

LOL. From what I can tell, it’s to help out with threadjacking. The thread started out one way but you and a few others went another way but people keep on commenting on the OP.

@purplepolkadots:  you could say that about all threads, not just the spinoffs.

@purplepolkadots:  Lol love this title… I think some people are just bored and want to have a discussion. That’s usually my case anyway!
