Thread Hijacking


2011-07-27


I am only pointing this out as some people may 'take the hump' if any of us does it to them by mistake and I would not like that to happen to anyone in the WeiWang!

It is a generally accepted rule in an open on-line forum that posting one’s own topic on a thread that has been opened by someone else is bad manners and called 'Thread Hijacking'. It would be different if you had posted a message that was directly relevant to a point you were trying to make about the original thread by way of constructive criticism or discussion. Most of 'Thread Hijacking' happens by mistake. One is usually able to realise after it being pointed out. It is then normally followed by an apology, and move to a different time and place to open a separated thread.

'Thread hijacking' also includes the behaviour that taking over a thread on a message board by taking a part of the original posted topic, twisting it around and ‘hijacking’ the thread itself. What happens is that the original content contained in the post becomes moot and whatever the ‘Thread hijacker’ has manipulated the content to become the new content thereby ‘hijacking’ the original intent of post. People will then respond to the ‘hijacker's’ input which has become the focus of the thread.

Even worse, in someone else’s blog with a specific topic, a ‘thread hijacker’ posts multiple messages which are self-centred comments and irrelevant to the blog’s topic, even using different ids. Subsequently, the entire discussion in the blog breaks off the original track. In this case, the hijacker does not only shift the topic, but steals the blog-owner’s participants/audiences as well. The consequences of hijacking someone else’s blog are destroying the blog’s original content but serving the hijacker’s own selfish purpose.

Thank you for reading.

由于‘Thread Hijacking’这个网络术语和概念最初来自英语阅读,因此原始博文是用英语写的。现在补充一个汉语的短文《劫持话题》。

《劫持话题》

在一个网络公共论坛上,正常情况下的跟帖,是跟帖人对原帖人的话题提出直接相关的己见、建设性的讨论或批评。因此网络上有个一般的共识: 对他人先前开辟的话题跟帖时,开出自己的另外话题,是一个不礼貌、不合理的举动。这种行为在网络上称为“劫持话题 Thread Hijacking”。大多数的“劫持话题”是无恶意的一时疏忽,一旦意识到或经他人提醒,就会赔礼道歉,而改在不同的时间或论坛另开话题。

“劫持话题”也可能是故意的。“话题劫持者”可以将一个已经得到普遍关注的原始话题,在跟帖里“刻意编辑”后,变换成了“话题劫持者”自己的另外话题。而使论坛原始的话题及其相关的讨论因此发生“脱轨”。结果是,篡改后的“新”话题完全/不全地取代了先前的讨论成为“新”的讨论焦点,而先前对原始话题的讨论反到看起来有些不伦不类, “话题劫持者”取代了原帖人成为论坛上大家回帖的兴趣中心。

最恶劣“劫持话题”是发生在个人的专题博客里。“话题劫持者”可以用多次、多马甲的跟帖(灌水),将他人的博客主题“篡改”,甚至造成事实上的博主换人。最终造成博客里出现了另一个以“话题劫持者”自我的中心。这样做,“话题劫持者”不但劫持了博客的主题,同时也盗窃了原博客里的那些慕(博主)名而来的参与者/观众。此时再看博主和参与者/观众之间原本紧凑相关的交谈,变得只零破碎,惨不忍睹。而“话题劫持者”则盗窃了原博主的天时、地利、人和,满足了其个人在它处得不到满足的私欲。事后如果再能“删帖灭迹”,一个 “完美的犯罪 – A perfect crime”,大功告成。

后记,“劫持话题”不包括大量删除他人的跟帖,又在“选择整理”后,再重新“恢复”等其它不磊行为。那不仅是“偷梁换柱”,更是“修改历史”之伎俩。也许人生因此真的得以超现实的丰富了。

用词轻重不当不准之处,在所难免,敬请读者用批评的眼光审读。

3.“劫持话题”在微坛已经是传统得不能再传统的游戏了,就是有长不大的人故意这样做。“修改历史”更是微坛的家常便饭,这地方是黑板报吗?老侃♂2011-07-29 12:07:18
2.这篇文章对Thread Hijacking的理性剖析非常有价值,说的很透彻,读了有收获,心安了。在微网认识老溜号真的是有幸,非常敬佩你的学识和人品修养,但愿能够学到三分也是满意的。
你让我信任,所以我借你的贵地说下,我不是老侃说的朦胧、跳舞、或者吾临天下的马甲,来微网也是来享受音乐,碰到作者需要砖头,于是就地就拾起一块拍了下,人太实诚,要是引得人们惊讶,还请多见谅。

非常、非常感谢你!

俺上世纪就说了跑题开罚单100刀。从前有个叫一帆(烦)的,发言时就先说,100刀留起来了,资助穷人。
