Not by everyone, by any measure. But by enough people (I won't name names), frequently enough, rapidly enough, that it poisons a great many potentially reasonable conversations.

I think in large part that's an issue of longevity.

There's an immediate reaction of "this old shit again?" to a lot of the stock lines (evolutionary or other scientific misinformation, the complete failure of cosmological arguments, whichever in particular it happens to be).

That's not always fair to the one posting it - to them it might be the first time they're thinking about it - but if you've seen it from the other side a dozen times the thirteenth isn't going to get the response the first did.

And also some people are jerks. But, that's kind of a universal problem, no?

But I've seen some people come in who express themselves as, say, Christians who are having doubts and want our perspectives on certain common arguments that they're finding a bit persuasive. And the response by many (though, as I said, not all) is immediate, vitriolic hostility, not towards just towards Christianity in general or the argument being discussed (which I'd find acceptable), but the poster in particular. The usual accusation is that it's someone here to proselytize under the guise of having doubts. Basically, ad hominem, either in place of a deconstruction of the argument or tacked on to the end just to be angry.

I like to think that as a collective we usually throw up a few good responses no matter the thread or OP. And it's usually just sarcasm or derails that get thrown out rather than open hostility - unless it clearly is someone banging the same ol' drum until it wears through.

But then, yes, there's also Taq.

But it's so frequently deployed without a shred of evidence, that I can't help but suspect that many of the innocent are getting hit with it along with the guilty, and often driven off. I don't know if this forum even has a declared mission statement... but if it does have one, and if it includes fostering or hosting discussion on these topics, then its definitely failing. I don't know how to fix it. It might be unfixable. That's why I'm increasingly feeling like leaving.

Oh, like anywhere else'd have you.

I dunno, if I don't care I usually just don't post anything.

Let's see... Muffs just got back from a long absence. And you say things had gone downhill recently. Coincidence? NEVER.

It's all Muff's fault. Place fell apart without him.

RE: Miss Meng has an important announcement
No, I posted the first pic of her (which was different) which did come after she was first mentioned. Then the picture of her with voldemort reference by someone else. Then this one with the fan.

The last time, someone posted a picture of a troll, saying "obvious troll is obvious." I followed that up with the troll with the fan.
