Game forums are always so fun at first but they always get over-populated by irritating types, or else, long-time members become frustrated and jaded, and then the whole place falls into negativity, sarcasm and constant argument over silly little things like how someone's preference is wrong or how one should/or should not say things in certain ways.
It's easy to get sucked in.
Just like it's easy to get sucked into conflict in life, in school or at work. You see these social groups forming. You find yourself belonging to one of these or want to belong to one of these. Might be funny to read some silly flame war for a while too. But before you know it, the community IQ falls, hostility is up and it's all not fun anymore.
There are always those who keep their heads. For the moment, I'm not one of these calm, level headed types. So I guess it's time for a break.
