    Do you think that threads get hijacked too much by off-topic comments? This is an anonymous poll and you can make more than one vote. You need to vote before you can see the results.

    Some whimsical posting outside is acceptable but not hijacking an entire thread like Sober's whiny thread was.

    There are plenty of threads to play around in without ruining a serious thread.

    When members have serious questions about their job, the union , grievances , pensions, retirement , teamster elections, etc. we members should be courteous and respectful. This is a win-win for everyone.

    I have been guilty for hijacking threads too. Just want to get that out there. It's just frustrating and annoying to find a thread that may be interesting only to find 2-3 good posts hidden within 25 nonsense posts.

    Its getting pretty bad around here when a moderator cant even start a poll asking a simple question about off-topic posts...without someone coming in and spamming it with a disrespectful off-topic post. Wow.

    It's funny you say this. The union forum is never touched by the people who were accused of throwing threads off topic, and yet it's a cesspool.

    A lot of it probably has to do with the fact she spams the forums about her being a stripper and sitting in a recliner naked, but nobody seems to bat an eye at that.

    List the members who you have problems with. If I am one I will refrain from speaking with new members until a preset time as everyone feels it is safe to do so. You can start a BC triumvirate to rule how long before I am allowed interactions with new members. Speak and it shall be done by me

    Since you asked, I will respectfully answer.
    Your question had nothing to do with her post, or with the poll, and it was clear that your intent in asking it was to embarass and ridicule her. Thats how it looked to me.

    I think it is best if you do not speak with any members on Brown Cafe.
    You personally irritate my hemorrhoids!
