After years of visiting this forum I can honestly tell you that there is ALWAYS animosity and high drama going on here.
Some of it real, some of it baited. More in the winter, when more folks are home instead of out. Most, not all, attributable to the 13 - 15 year old that doesn't have a car (or often a moped) yet, and hasn't developed the social skills needed to treat poeple with a minimum of respect. Most of the rest is caused by folks who _know_ they are right and you are wrong.
I used to come here for moped help. Now I come here for the amusement. It's like slowing down to look at a horrific accident. You don't want to see, but you look anyway.
It's entertainment. Little else.
