I don't think so, not by any regular use of the term.

If you do not want opinions, then ask people not to opine.
Because that's always worked. But to be fair, it doesn't seem like he's interested in writing for the same reason most people are.

From person experience I really don't think that's going to happen on this site, and intuitively probably for a majority of the internet in general. Many people will aggressively shove their opinions in wherever they want because they they think they are anonymous, even though you can use a couple programs to monitor information coming in and out of a site which can lead to an ip address which can lead to a physical location, and then there's still all the stuff your search provider stores which can be accessed by really any government official if they get a warrant to do so by claiming the access has to do with legal issues that can be resolved with that information.

No it didn't? Unless you're really angry that people can find your address?

is not going to be this one if you stay on topic and don't post completely irrelevant comments that would be the cause of the topic to be closed in the first place due to their derailment of the thread. There's still a perfectly legitimate chance for people to discuss the topic if they actually want to.

I didn't realize this thread was about tracing people's physical addresses via IP.

It's called a tangent and appropriately so because it intersects the topic at exactly 1 discussion point.

It's also called derailing a thread. (not that it was a good thread in the first place)

Derailing would mean there's no room to return to the previous topic due to the excessively high volume of posts relating to a single topic that is unrelated to the original topic making any post about the original topic out of place. People can still talk about the original topic if they want, it was as I explained, a "tangent" as there are only a few comments in a row that are unrelated to the topic prior to this completely useless tangent that was started for no other purpose other than to try and cause disruption and arguments in the thread.  In short, if you end this discussion now and actually post something that relates to the the main topic as well as not troll, nothing's going to happen to the thread.
