Replying to a forum thread with a post that has at best a loose connection to the thread's topic, with the result that the thread starter's question gets side-tracked.
Often, the tread gets completely derailed as more forum members respond to the hijacker's post or add their own problems to the thread, which are not related to the either the original topic, nor the hijacker's topic.
A vague thread title is an open invitation to hijacking a forum thread with all kinds of unrelated reports.
