This thread http://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb/showthread.php?t=597017 appears to have been set up to comment on the dog show and individual dogs. I think it was light-hearted and intended to have lots of comments about liking certain dogs or a certain dog’s antics.
It immediately got hijacked into a dog breeding debate. The mods tried to step in, but to no avail. You hijacking jackasses ignored the notes and continued the hijacks.
It would have been easy to debate that topic elsewhere; it’s been done to death before.
Not the strongest rant in the world, but you ruined the damn thread–one that comes around once a year.
To the OP of that thread, I don’t mean to tread on your toes, but I didn’t think thats the direction you thought your thread would go.
