    If it were just honest opinions about toys, this wouldn’t be a problem.

    It’s all the extracurricular activities and the people who condone them. That stuff just hits some people differently because this venue is where they find relief from the daily grind.

    If your attitude is "if you don't like it, you should walk away", you're probably contributing to the culture that is driving people away.

    By the way, the name of the song is Victory by Thomas Bergersen.

    Yeah, in 10 years on this site there’s only two negative interactions I’ve had with people on this site that lingered with me in a bad way. I get on here a few times a day, get updates on things I’m interested in, drop an opinion or two or pics of the new thing I’ve gotten or pics of comparisons or fixes if somebody has asked for them, then I close the window and go on with my day. The positives I’ve gotten from this site and my interactions with other members outweigh the negatives so much that it’s laughable. And this is coming from someone who disagrees with at least half of what gets posted.

    People take this stuff a little too seriously. It’s supposed to be a fun hobby and not a source of stress.

    Call me skeptical, but I kinda doubt it was anything serious that drove em away….

    If You say anything, and I mean anything, negative about a toy people flock to defend it and tell you how negative they are. The board recently has become a weird eco chamber where only positivity is allowed and you aren’t allowed to criticize things. It’s anti discussion if anything. If opposing opinions on toys make you want to leave, maybe the internet isn’t he best place to be.

    Yes but what gets me (and by that I mean I roll my eyes) are the posts that say “what a piece of shit, will not be buying” that’s not being critical, it’s just annoying and unnecessary.

    I missed it, but from what I gather it actually got pretty ugly and a lot of stuff was deleted.

    I think part of it is the way it was handled, but as I say I didn't see it so I can't comment.

    I think a lot of overly partisan behaviour has sprung up, and there are those that get a kick out of just shouting the opposite for shits and giggles, so much so that they go out looking for a fight.

    It seems a few guys were on the receiving end of a deliberate and quite serious troll attack of this type. The ugly side of the internet, unfortunately

    I’m not definitely not a fan of that all or nothing approach, where a part of something looks off or not as good as a competing offering, and it’s “it looks like dogshit” rather than “not as good as y looks.” I roll my eyes and scroll past stuff like that, but it’s never come close to driving me away.

    This is the pertinent point here. It's fine not liking a toy, we aren't going to like everything, but purposely going into a thread about a toy you have no joy in, have no intention of spending your hard earned money on just to shit on something others like?

    We all have our own opinions that can be discussed in an adult way but nah man, these dudes are utter cock wombles.

    Ppl should try focusing on stuff they do like and enjoy the hobby and should be ashamed they're having this effect on others.

    Poison contamination in every thread now. See I made a good choice in skipping TFCON.

    I expect a throwdown between the MP-52 people and the DS-01 people in the next TFCon. Participants will challenge each other to "take off your mask man!!" and possibly give each other Covid that will cement their undying hatred for each other.

    It will be a TFCon for the ages.

    Agreed, those kind are pretty pointless and probably toxic, but they are also the easiest thing ever to ignore (I mean with your mind, not the button)

    If we don't get a Buzzsaw in a future pack, how easy do you think it would be to mod Laserbeak?
    I'd buy two sets to do that I think.
