Nothing has been hijacked here. Where does it say whether the content of any specific post is "illegal" in any discussion? The only thing I see in GHMB regulations that addresses what constitutes an "illegal" post is the requirement that all comments must be respectful and not insulting, disparaging, or libelous, but I don't see you attempting to constrain anyone from posting such hostile posts.

There is nothing whatsoever about Steve's posts that constitutes "illegal" or even disrespectful content, at least in this discussion so far.


> ...force it to go to a different direction than intended...

Did you actually read the OP? The first two statements are:

    Were the causeways of Ancient Egypt really practical constructions for utilitarian use?

    Are the angles of the causeways of the Giza Pyramids coincidental?

How can anyone claim that Steve's comments are not relevant to that premise, let alone "illegal"? Steve is simply providing his own analysis that addresses his approach to those very same questions.


> or use it for one's own purposes...

The statements in the OP are clearly related to Steve's comments. In fact, the OP doesn't even issue a request to constrain all posts to the questions posted in the OP -- and yet even if such a request was made, Steve's posts are quite related to the OP, so what exactly is really going on here other than to attempt to stifle an attempt to address a mystery (in this "Mysteries" forum) by presenting a perspective that happens to oppose the mainstream view?

Actually, what's in "poor taste" and "rude" is criticizing anyone for actually attempting to offer their own perspective about specific question posted at the top of the OP.

Well then you might want to avoid reading the posts at GHMB Mysteries forum if you don't want people addressing the questions posted in each OP.


> because It is ashame you find common courtesy so easy to dismiss...

Steve has shown more common courtesy than most posters here. He didn't insult anyone who disagrees with him. No sarcasm. He didn't tell anyone they were "willfully ignorant" or "stupid". He simply and respectfully posted the thoughts he's had about the questions posed in the OP.

What's a "shame" is when some users here attempt to stifle others from civilly and respectfully voicing their own alternative perspective of the subject at hand.

Why do you find it so difficult to have a logical discussion when it splits into different threads? Are you not viewing with the thread format? If you use the chronological format then sure, it's very difficult to keep up unless the poster quotes the post being replied to (Steve does that albeit in an awkward way; it would be clearer if he simply used the "Quote" function rather than cutting/pasting the original streamed post) before he offers his own reply).

I don't see any disrespect at all in Steve's posts. In my opinion he represents an ideal poster: creative, willing to express his own ideas, allowing others to freely post their own perspective without trying to constrain the content of their posts, not issuing nearly the hostile attitude others express about posts they disagree with, etc.

It's very simple to avoid sidebar discussion you're not interested in when viewing in threaded format. Perhaps people who are having trouble sorting through the different treads are using the very problematic chronological format. I would urge you to use the threaded format if you object to the approach taken by certain threads in their perspective of the discussion at hand. (Granted, the threaded format is very difficult to follow on smart phones, but it's very easy on the larger screens of tablets and computers).

Only when the GHMB Mods have a problem with the direction that threads take can the allowable content of any discussion be specified, constrained, considered "illegal", and enforced. Otherwise, for better or for worse, we have no legit basis for whinging about whether this or that respectful post may or may not be allowed.
