Having no topic to derail, it can't be derailed unless all comments pertain to not derailing it.

I'm attempting to discuss this underailable thread. I'd thank you to not derail it

Well a dud topic that dies in under ten posts probably qualifies. But there must be other reasons...

I guess so, msg. You make an interesting point. Do you have any examples that we could discuss?

I'm thinking about it. If course, we could just allow this "dud" thread to peter out and disprove borealis' thesis that way, but I think we can set ourselves a higher challenge.

I think we ought to consider regional differences in the derail too. Which is essentially a cheat to prepare the thread to take in Australia / Canada / US / UK dumb European banter which is near-universal in MindRomp threads...

So such intercolonial/motherland banter will not constitute underaillery?

So for example, there is the Maryland derail, otherwise known as any Jerome post, and its more recent Trans-Atlantic variant, the D.Icke derail.

Not any more. They will function as exemplars of the type...

Yes, yes indeed. One must also factor in grammar-fixing derails, gratuitous smiley-posting derails and the like. I hope we do not see any of these in this thread.

I'm not sure if the above are exemplars of meta thread derailment?

Perhaps we should take a poll and disuss the results of which thread derailments are most popular, and also which derailments appear to be most prevalent. Then we can work on bridging these inequality gaps.

Equal opportunity derailment? Maybe there's a feminist critique of derails?
