It is important to understand that this is a public forum, and no one "owns" a thread --- just like no one "owns" airspace if a conversation wanders at a party. If anyone here would like to own a thread, that should be done in a blog format. SkirtCafe would be happy to link to blogs of its members.
Finally, if you feel a thread has gone off-topic and would like it to get more on-topic, the baristas (moderators) have the option to split the thread. This is not an infrequent occurrence on some boards, and it really does help when reading posts. You need only drop a PM to a barista (or use the email address at the top of this page), and we will be happy to split the thread.
As you say, some threads do 'branch out', often in completely different directions! But that's just the way conversations 'in the real world' do, too! It has always been one of the strengths of this forum, that folk feel sufficiently at ease to 'talk' to one another. And, of course, just as at a party, in the office or whatever, groups will 'split off' from the original theme and discuss some element in greater detail. Get someone loudly arguing semantics, and the room goes quiet, just as it has here on a few, recent occasions. Before long, they're alone in the room, bellowin' to themselves, as others look for a quieter venue to carry on their conversations.
