Very true, Oglala. This thread has survived and still thrives. One of the three or four Topix "gem" threads to do such... I'm not one to argue politics or sexual orientation, so I avoid the others on here that are aimed in that direction.<quoted text>
Why should it bother you??? Eventually we will get around to talking about birds....we always do. The fact that this thread has almost 68,000 comments suggests that most posters find something of interest here. If this thread upsets you, why don't you start a different one???? Some people find the smallest things to be disgruntled about.
When you have this many comments on one thread, there is no feasible way to expect every single comment to stay on track, lol. It's got to veer at some point. But as you said, it always goes back to the topic at hand.
