This post is one of a number of posts I have seen on the site over the years exalting the dumb, dangerous, and illegal practice of trainhopping. Can we just call a moratorium on these posts?

Is it really necessary to comment on threads you think are "stupid"? Surely it's better to "take it to Meta" if it bothers you that much or just ignore it.
