So I have been here for over an year and there is still something I don't understand. Why is there so much fighting here, over everything? I don't want to put this place down as I have made many friends, so let's not take it down that route. But it seems like what anybody posts, some one has to come in from the completely opposite side attacking them. I will just use my experiences real quick. I know I have complained about BBTS, and to a much much smaller degree Hasbro for the FE thing. But in all my posts, I always make a recommendation or something to say, maybe if it was handled like this or that, this may work better. I am not attacking any person on the boards or anything. But I notice that people come on, and use stuff like "Butthurt" much, "get a life", "get some friends", so on and so on. It get's really personal, and quick. The thing that put it over the edge for me was this week when I posted a simple enough thread about me and my son playing with TFers. I ended it by saying I feel bad for those parents who have to spend $70 on Bulkhead if they were their kids favorite character and they had to buy it for him for a BDay or something if that is what is promised. Because of that last part, I was told that I was having a tantrum, and that I am a bad parent. Completely unwarranted and unacceptable to the thread. I mean, I just don't get it. I get people not liking bitching and all, but then why not ignore it. I mean the person bitching is obviously upset about something and just wants to share so other people can say, I feel ya. Once that goes, then the person is usually fine. I mean in every hobby there are the frustrating parts and the happy parts. But what happens here is that some one is upset at a situation, and people come on calling them names and degrading them. It makes something small, really big. Why not just ignore the post and move on? Why most we escalate everything? I have been part of close to 20 forums in my life ranging from High End Electronics to Videogame Systems to Movies. If on AVSForums you came on and said the same things here. Such as x,y,z place takes forever to ship, these prices are out of control, this item got canceled, it sucks, people don't bash the shit out of you. Most of the time they take the time to either educate you or agree with you. If not, they don't go crazy. So what is it about TFers that does this? I have a feeling that there is going to be a lot of bad stuff that comes from this, but I rather there not be. I know a lot of people feel the same way as I do, as I have seen a lot of posts with people saying the same thing. So I guess I just want to understand why the need to argue with people. Why can't we have differing opinions without resorting to all of this?
