Today, for a brief second, I thought of a life without Roger. It was much like my current life, except that this forum was a bit nicer.

Is there any region between the either/or of "rock n roller" and "delicate hothouse flowers", where we can not be shitheads to one another and still stay afloat?
The evidence suggests not. There are - to my mind - 3 basic mindsets:
1. Rock N Roller.
3. Self-Appointed Protectors of Monkeys.
50% of posts being bitching would be a fucking GODSEND compared to this 169% STUPID FUCKING FLIRTATION.
All of you will betray me, before that cock crows.
So who is it?
I'll break out the gimp tonight.
Well, a lot of people do get sick of it. There haven't been as many ridiculously long flounces as of late, but I attribute that to mere addiction.
there actually have been a lot of silent flounces, or just decreased posting
I've talked to a lot of people over the last few months who feel like this place's vibe is not conclusive to the kinds of discussions/community they want to participate in. I am going to get myself in trouble for naming names, but off the top of my head - eve, burns, fred, badge, kel, enki, rumckle, net, cainad, captain fruitopia, ratatosk... definitely more.. All of them have mentioned to me how the negativity and shitting on others discourages them from posting. Or how they got frustrated that a potentially interesting thread was reduced to telling people why they're wrong or stupid. I also don't feel like it's something I can do anything about, talking about it tends to make people defensive, and frankly I'm already sorry for bringing it up.
