Subject: Topic Drift

topic drift /n./ Term used on GEnie, use.net and other
electronic fora to describe the tendency of a thread to drift
away from the original subject of discussion (and thus, from the
Subject: header of the originating message), or the results of
that tendency. Often used in gentle reminders that the
discussion has strayed off any useful track,i.e. "I think we
started with a question about K Randle's last book, but we've
ended up discussing the sexual habits of the common marmoset.
Now _that's_ topic drift!"


[Nice one, Sean.--ebk <VBG>]

    In an infinite universe infinitely anything is possible.
