Good lord! When did that happen? You'd have thought his political opponents would have tried to make something of it.
(I shot the sheriff.) - the sheriff.
(But I swear it was in selfdefence.)
Oh, no! (Ooh, ooh, oo-oh) Yeah!
I say: I shot the sheriff - Oh, Lord! -
(And they say it is a capital offence.)
Yeah! (Ooh, ooh, oo-oh) Yeah!
It isn't necessarily about being "a proprietary person" at all.
It is more about respecting the nature of a particular discussion. Repeated irrelevant digressions can sometimes kill what might otherwise be a good discussion for those participating. Whereas some humorous topic-related relief from deep seriousness can sometimes be most welcome! (Hello, djjd! )
True, it's not as proprietary, but in most cases in my posts I'm not that serious about the issue. And having 6 sisters, I can weave and bob through many simultaneous conversations, carrying on the main one, so for me, it's not an issue. I can see how others find it so, though.

Nay, I speak the truth!
Perhaps we have been frequenting different threads, Mame?
I liken it to someone belching in the corner of a large room. If two or twenty folks are having a conversation and someone starts repeatedly belching on the other side of the room then chances are one or more people who were part of the conversation are going to want to talk about the person in the corner. Others will want to stay on topic. If the belching goes on long enough, or if it's loud enough, then the conversation will most likely become about the appropriateness of belching in the room. Those who want to continue the original discussion will likely leave the room and take it elsewhere. Those who have moved on to the topic of belching may take that elsewhere as well, but the net effect is that the original discussion is over.
After almost a year out of print, I'm thrilled to be able to announce that the first The Order of the Stick book, Dungeon Crawlin' Fools, is available again.
I was teasing you, hon
Its sometimes frustrating to come across a thread whose original post I'd like to talk to; only to find that the last two pages of responses have digressed to 4-word quips about someone's doggy-pooh, or some such.
like you would in a large discussion, you have to learn to filter out the stuff you don't want to participate in
