You mean the SR thread that was on its sixth page and was started in Nov of last year?
The one where a number of people, including myself, were begging the OP to stop with their delay tactics and get to the point?
As Strange has already noted, that's precisely how threads are treated, and more so in speculations. Going off on a tangent to have a discussion of some other point is hijacking. Tangents that persist more than a post or two are usually split off, or trashed (and possibly a warning issued) if it's egregious.
The way it's supposed to work is that the OP posts something, and you respond to the OP. You're not supposed to raise questions not directed at the OP, other than clarification of answers already given. In speculations this is especially important, because the OP is typically introducing a new take on some science, and nobody else has insight into their thinking. People butting in to start new discussions will sidetrack things pretty quickly.
A lot of times we do this. People were begging the OP to answer their questions and get to the point for some time. Plus, the OP posted their "last post on this topic" twice.
This would seem to be a Fletch/Mr. Babar definition of sudden.
Dr. Joseph Dolan: You know, it's a shame about the thread.
Fletch: Oh, it was. Yeah, it was really a shame. To be closed so suddenly like that.
Dr. Joseph Dolan: Ahh, it was dying for months.
Fletch: Sure, but... the end was really... very sudden.
Dr. Joseph Dolan: It was in intensive care for eight weeks!
Fletch: Yeah, but I mean the very end, when it was actually closed. That was extremely sudden!
