    Hey Guys,

    So I have seen a massive increase in the prevalence of thread Hi-Jacking. What do I mean exactly? I mean someone starting a thread
    needing some advice on how to market a particular subject effectively or having a celebration in becoming a Jr.VIP or any event and finally
    even scam awareness threads.

    Here is how thread hi-jacking occurs most.

    Original OP - Ask a Question
    Member - Answers
    Member 2 - Answers

    Then Member 1 and Member 2 do not agree or have some personal difference and turn the whole thread into a personal argument
    leaving the original poster starring at a huge block of replies that do not pertain to their questions or original topic.

    It is not right and becomes exhausting to the original poster and many members.
    I am not saying I am perfect and caught myself almost doing the same thing and did before. But it needs to stop or slow down.

    Yes, there are some aggravating people and trolls out there and here is what you can do about them simply:

    1. Ignore them! (Come on man....are they really doing harm? Don't feed the trolls)

    2. Report them! (Did they say something that is racist or offensive? Or in other words against the rules?)

    3. Place them on your "Ignore member list" It is easy to do.

    A. click there username
    B. Click "Add to Ignore list"

    These are three simple solutions VBulletin gives you power to control.

    Just a thought....

    Cheers!

    PS: And for those who fuss about quality content in the lounge. The Lounge is for easy topics that we can enjoy
    socializing about like "Happy Birthday ________" Or "What do you think of this type of car? "

    If you want serious marketing content or how to make money then check out the threads below. The time you take fussing
    about easy going topics in the lounge you could have learned something.

    Can't add my thanks or rep, but yes I agree (although I may be guilty of this on occasion).

    It is a bit annoying. Doesn't happen nearly as much here as it does on most forums though.

    if someone is really out of line you can neg rep them, or report them if its offensive. Otherwise, let it go.
