What about the etiquette of staying on topic? The only person who is
OFFICIALLY allowed to change the subject matter of a thread is the OP.
Sure some folks might make an off topic post here and there however i
find it bombastically rude when folks just change a topic of thread
they do not own.

How would you like it if i came to your house and wrote my name on
your refrigerator door, or used your toilet without asking, or slept
in your bed? I would not do that because i have manners. Feel free to
make yourself comfortable but don't put you feet on the coffee table.
