I was given a warning for hijacking thread https://www.physicsforums.com/showthread.php?p=4306454#post4306454 and would like to dispute it publicly. The Forums Global Guidelines says: "Do not hijack an existing thread with off-topic comments or questions--start a new thread." First of all, my additions to this thread were not off-topic. I offered a more detailed question about the differences between magnetic and electric fields, just as the title says. Since the thread had been abandoned for more than a week, and because everyone was criticising the OP for not giving a more specific question (something HE was given a warning for) I see no grounds for calling my addition "hijacking". I also did not get any acknowledgment on my complaint about Naty1, who called my post "ridiculous" without offering any useful thoughts. I come here for help and discussion, not empty or hurtful insults, which are also against Global Guidelines. I already did internet research on my first question before coming here. I learned that there is a lot about magnets at the atomic level that isn't known yet. Maybe my third question was easy to find elsewhere, but I think the other two are perfectly legitimate -- NOT hijacking -- and condusive to an ultimately good discussion.
