.....probably no surprise here...we've always had, and still have, dogs and a cat......

"Cats and dogs, living together...", Bill Murray, Ghost Busters

Vigo the Carpathian - hero and protector of Rusyns, Lemkos and Romanians. Hungarians? Not so much....

ROFL!  :D :D :D

2014 should be proclaimed a Jubilee Year - 30th Anniversary of Ghostbusters!

Hijacking is when someone replies to a thread with a post that has no intention of remaining on topic and would rather side track the discussion to something else.

How a thread then gets derailed is when members respond to the hijacker's post and can even add to further side track the thread.

So how to prevent?

Be specific in your thread title and OP, and whoever is the OP needs to keep it to the original topic.

I would suggest to hijack speaks to a larger pattern in a poster's behavior. Repeatedly posting in multiple threads with rather diverse topics always attempting to steer the discussion to the often volatile pet topic of their own.

Posting without the intent of being "on topic" has always been good internetz. Anyone who has weathered overly modded groups and boardz, knows that the attempt to end all "off topic" discussion is the kiss of death for that group or board.

Good internet practice when a thread derails, goes off topic without any malintent, is to separate the threads.

Man, I was a great mod. Really, nothing but love for my touch.

I disagree, keeping topics from going off topic is a good thing and it does not matter if people don't like it and stop going to that forum. It keeps bad people away. like me!

in another forum, I have many infractions which never go away, if I get any more I will be banned for some time! So, I be very careful to not just write whatever pops in my head! That is the way to discipline on a forum!!! .... not that I like it, but that is the way I would do it at least since it worked on me
I am a demonic servant! Beware!

That's sad. 

My cat was not a kitten when we adopted it, and he was definitely "lost on purpose".  But he was an absolute delight, we never had any problems with him (not even allergies, though other cats do bother us).  He died on the day after Christmas in 2001.  I miss him still.     

I'm sorry for your loss.

Was his name Timothy, by any chance?

We named him Morris, after the 9 Lives cat (they looked identical).

Let it be know that we here acknowledge the 'Rulz of Orthonorm'.

1. Orthonorm plays the internetz, we are his pieces.

2. You do not talk about fight club.

3.
orthonorm does not play dice with the forum; he plays an ineffable game of his own devising, which might be compared, from the perspective of any of the other players, to being involved in an obscure and complex version of poker in a pitch dark room, with blank cards, for infinite stakes, with a dealer who won't tell you the rules, and who smiles all the time.

Those who actually know internet, let's start help others using it correctly.

For example, hijacking lately as been thrown around a lot and incorrectly so.

What is hijacking when properly understood? Please provide examples for discussion, if clarity calls for it.

I've explained some internet before to no avail, but maybe having a thread dedicated to it will help others. For example, troll here is used incorrectly about 99% of the time.

I do not consider this internet. This is something I might have seen on the Jack Paar show in the early 1960s (some entertainer trying to plug their own schtick).

I have been on the internet since 1980 (I believe it was termed Darpanet when I started). It wasn't perfect. In order to successfully send a file by ftp one often had to go to the hub maps to directly specify the path from one hub to the next to the next to the next in order for it to get to its destination. If I recall correctly each hub was separated by the pipe symbol (I only mention this because instead of |, it might have been \! or \|, I just do not remember).

I also purchased a Commodore 64 before it came out (around 1982), purchased a 300 baud modem a year or two later, and I did post at BBS's. So historically, I might be considered someone that is somewhat knowledgeable about the internet.

Back to the original sentence. The media does not determine the phenomenon above. It is just the prevalent media.

But..........DO. YOU. KNOW. INTERNET?!?!?  Which, of course, raises the obvious question of the relationship between one's knowledge of internet (or lack thereof) and one's ability (or lack thereof) to appreciate (like? enjoy?) That 70's Show and The Big Bang.  For my part, I make no claim to knowing internet (weird syntax) and couldn't care much less.  And the ONLY circumstance under which I could even begin to imagine that I'd watch either of those programs would be if someone were to prop up my rotting corpse in a chair set in front of a t.v. showing them. ;D
