    Re: "don’t side track"

    To sidetrack (usually spelled as one word) something means to divert it from the main course, to push it in an unwanted direction, to derail it, often deliberately, to prevent further progress or development.

    Here's as example: 'Don't sidetrack this thread. It's an interesting topic and we don't want to lose it through your irrelevant comments...'

    All the best,
    Tee Kay
