Personally, I think this forum has acheived a near perfect balance when it comes to the issue of public disputes. Obviously it means that if you want to hang out on either extreme, it can be a little uncomfortabe, but for the majority, they’re right in the sweet spot.

I used to be a member of a drummers forum where no one dared say a negative comment about anyone or anything or they would be banned. Everything was so sickly-sweet, I couldn’t take it any more.

So I moved to a graphic designers forum where I learned a lot and enjoyed hearing from more experienced people in my industry. In this particular forum, there was very little in the way of moderation, and by the time I moved on, it was a bunch of senior members (and moderators) flaming anyone that joined the forum until they ran away in tears. It was really nasty.

Then I stumbled across Flying Solo by accident…and I’m still here.
