I'm starting to see a pattern in various threads on assorted forums I've visited or belong to over time that after the initial subject of a thread has been addressed (say between 5 to 10 posts), members tend to meander off topic and whatever the original subject was is soon forgotten - often leading to hilarity and hijinx - or not. Digression is totally unpredictable.
To that end I figure, 'Why bother with a specific topic at all?'
(Even though this is very clearly a topic itself)
What say you?
