At the risk of aggravating some readers, I'll say that I think that by
sharing these viewpoints and perspectives, some people (hopefully most)
will alter their mindset and approach and not only respect the idea of
staying on topic or taking the time to to edit the subject to indicate a
subtle change in topic, but that others will be a tiny bit more tolerant to
these "frolics and detours". Both approaches, particularly combined, will
achieve a higher level of satisfaction for everyone.
In this day and age, people seem only too willing to find a reason to take
offense when the best path (and mentally healthiest path) is in fact to
find a reason to overlook the offense (though perhaps it is ok to call it
out) and focus on the positives. Another part of that is the mindfulness
that includes a respect for others and even for what those expectations
might be. Dealing with expectations and the connected emotion can be a
tough/frustrating thing. Especially when it surrounds something that
people look to for pleasure.
Heck, instead of working hard to be offended, we need to both work hard to
respect others, find the positives, and forgive the "trespasses". One of my
"happy thoughts" is the scene from "Life of Brian" where they sing "Always
look on the bright side of life"!

Hopefully this all contributes to members wanting to help and share even
