It's strange that you just posted this as I've been reading the new posts on this thread this morning thinking the same thing.
I'd thought about also saying basically the same thing but it's not just this thread, it's just the nature of the beast that is the forum on the internet.
A post has a comment that initiates a thought about something else, a comment is then made that slightly diverts things and pretty soon, as has this thread, it takes on multiple lives. This can be good or bad depending on what you are looking for and what you expect when you try to read a new post on a thread such as this.
Not badmouthing anyone but I always get the feeling when this happens that the one that may, even accidently, send a thread off on a tangent, wouldn't start a new thread with the discussion they brought up, but will discuss it on a hijacked thread.
In the end, people go to a thread such as this and see the new, diverted comments, and the new tangent takes on a life of it's own.;);)
I guess it's best to just read every post on every thread just to make sure you don't miss something.
