This tactic is common when someone doesn’t like the current topic and wants to detour into something else instead, something easier or safer to address. Red herrings are typically related to the issue in question but aren’t quite relevant enough to be helpful. Instead of clarifying and focusing they confuse and distract.
This is a boating forum if you aren't aware, and as we were recently reminded, so not sure about that.

But there's only so much that can be said about a guy that won an unfair dismissal case because his employer got pee'd off that he didn't toe the "company" line despite his right to free speech and fired him. I guess that makes most posts in this thread red herrings by your definition.
