Hello,

Are you a hijacker? This is the place for you. Please feel free to discuss your hijacking inclinations here.

What motivates you? Why did you do it?

Was it someone else's fault? Who? Why was it their fault? What had they done?

At what point did the situation become an official hijacking? What distinguished the newly developed condition of hijacking from the original condition?

Could something other than hijacking have been done? Were there no other options?

Now that I've created a signature, does it go back and attach itself to all of my previous posts in all threads? It did here. I created it after my initial post and before my confession, and it attached itself to both of my posts.

Any time a thread is updated it goes back and rebuilds the thread dnamically using the newest and best information. So only those topics that have been updated since you revised your signature will show the newest and best.
So exactly what does "Schreckmann" mean???

Schreck is german for fright. Mann is german for man. So, Schreckmann was that guy wearing lederhosen that went around after one too many during Octoberfest and frightened the children and stole their candy. Thus was Holloween born.

So Max Schreck (Nosferatu) was Max Fright ... how appropriate!

It just occured to me that with the number of times the word "hijack" appear in this thread, surely this web page has been red-flagged by Echelon by now.
