    What are hijacking and trolling? Heard these terms used here a few times and just not 100% clear of their meanings.
     
  2. Hikjacking is taking a thread started for one purpose or discussion and using it for another. Going off on a tangent.

    Trolling is making purposefully inflamatory statements to try and start a fight

    When someone replys about something in a post that has nothing to do with the original topic.

    That's what I thought. Just wanted to make sure. Yeah, a lot of trolling going on for sure. Childish.

    Not sure what "fark" is, so no.
     
  7. "why do fly guys only come out in the spring to snag steelhead while spawning..."?
    "when will the trout start showing up in the ash******a"?

    Example of a combined hijack and troll from the steelhead forum.
