Not sure if you guys use these terms or not:
Hijacking: Jumping into the middle of a thread and taking it in a different direction
Cross Posting: Starting up a thread that's very similar to an exisiting thread, usually (but not always), in a different forum.
I'd just like to know what's considered good form here? Yesterday I started a new thread because I didn't want to 'hijack' an existing thread.
Later on a moderator merged my thread in to the existing thread, which is cool, I just don't want to cause anybody any grief. So should I assume that 'hijacking' is considered the lesser of two evils?
