Why not instead of saying no, suggest that a new post is created when the urge to drift is so many sigmas out of bounds?

Can these "forms" be modifed so that a "New Topic" button can be added, so that when used a new topic is created instead of having the post added as a reply?

The fact that the display when reading deviates greatly from a typical collapsable thread makes it less amicable, I suppose, to supporting such thread branches.

Mmmmmm?
No.

Closing threads and pruning off topic comments is standard procedure in most discussion groups.

If I did that it would
A. take a lot of time away from me.
AND
B. Make me even more irritable.

Unfortunately, as it is, it discourages people from reading a thread to the end or adding to the initial question and or topic. Some folks aren't naturally geared to steering everyone back into focus. This isn't a new problem.

I blame billboards, adverts, pop-ups, MTV and the 5 million other media feeds cluttering our perception.

STOP THE INSANITY!!!!
