A situation where, after a sensible comment has been made, the receiver understands little or none of the comment or its context. Often ending up in a lengthy re-examination of the original comment at great distress to the issuing party.

The act of following a perfectly valid comment that would ordinarily spark debate with an idiotic question, thus derailing the entire conversation.
