This is partially inspired by the current hot UI debate, but this has been a problem for a longer time:
Blender Artist is getting more and more unfriendly to be on. People are turning everything into them versus us, using nasty debating techniques, then accusing others of using nasty debating techniques. Everyone is insulted left and right, and it’s becoming harder and harder to just enjoy reading threads.
I can handle some stuff, but I know I’m not the only one feeling that Blender and Cg discussions is turning out to be only good for becoming stressed than you know, actual Blender and CG discussions.
People have already left the forum because it’s too stress inducing, and more people are considering leaving.
And I’m not saying we should all get along and go all daycare-mother on everyone, but if we disagree can we at the least be relaxingly disagreeing? I’m posting this here because it’s an issue, and I have no solution, but I would like to hear others opinion on how to solve this.
