Could someone tell me why it is that one starts to read a tread on some subject. Then part of the way through it goes of at a tangent effectively on a completely different matter, which has happened because of some comment that someone has made in the original post.
What might be better is to make a comment that re-directs people to a new thread.
I find it very confusing / annoying when one is trying to read a posts, and then it goes of about something else.
oh and the jam goes on the scone before the clotted cream!!!
That's how it occurs some one makes a statement that may have some tangential relationship and people respond this is a forum of ( generally) rugged individualists who spend a lot of time and money on something the rest of the world considers pointless.

Now that depends upon whether you are in Devon or Cornwall, Haverlock. I have eaten thick Devon cream that could never be spread over jam of any kind. Whereas apart from passing my driving test in Gunnislake, I haven't been to Cornwall since I was too young to remember anything but hopping from doorway to doorway due to the incessant rain! Oops, sorry, Andy!
