Let's talk about ally behavior, derailing edition

Derailment, people.  Derailing is never, ever a good idea.  And yet well-meaning people do it all the time.  I feel the temptation at times, myself.  Never, ever a good idea.

Here are some excellent resources on derailment:

Enjoy.  (Some of them are pretty funny.  Wait, humor -- ?!)
