Agreed, but it might help if you mentioned exactly what that means, as
those doing it likely don't understand the issue, or they'd /not/ be doing
it...

Thread hijacking occurs when you hit reply to an existing thread, then
simply change the subject, and post a question entirely different than the
existing thread.  Because you hit reply, the post's references header will
still say it belongs in the old thread, and a decent client will thread it
as such, regardless of whether it has a different subject or not (altho
some clients make threading new subjects as new threads an option).

The better alternative is to create a NEW post (as opposed to a reply to
an existing post), starting a new thread, rather than hijacking an old one.
