Indeed, and that's the thing: "thread crapping", in that respect, is usually spontaneous, and where someone simply reacts to a particular comment made, on the spur of the moment, because they find it funny, or whatever. There is never any deliberate or premeditated plan to disrupt someone's thread.

"Gerroff of moi thread!" It's like a farmer shouting: "Gerroff of moi land!" - the difference being that the farmer is entitled to shout that, as he owns the land. That's not the case here, as no-one 'owns' any of the content submitted. Some folk may wish to bear that in mind.
