We Should Try to Stay on Topic

Recently mstrchk pointed out that a post of mine had strayed far from the topic.  I realized that I had committed an sin that often annoys me when others do it.

 

Look through a significant number of threads and you will find that, often, there are posts that bear no relation to the thread's title.

 

Typically, someone makes a side comment in a response and people start responding to that comment and a whole new dialogue falls under a completely unrelated title.

 

I think that we should try to minimize this sort of thing.

 

Perhaps a Community Manager might point out when people stray too far from topic and try to keep these threads "on topic."

 

Any thoughts, fellow Insiders?
