While other sites allow threads to meander in whatever direction anyone wants to go, this site has traditionally frowned on such a practice. This is known as hijacking discussion. The reason we politely ask members to respect this request is because new respondents, having different perspectives, questions, & needs frequently take discussion in a different direction as presented by the original poster. This helps provide continuity, it helps when searching is done after the fact (& there is a lot of searching done on this site...), & allows the original poster to continue discussion in whatever direction they originally intended.
