This is the reason why the forum has gone boring: Are my children semi-invisible!?
Impossible to have a different opinion or see the world in a different way, one is judged solely on the emotional impact of one's messages. It makes it totally impossible to get an interesting intellectual fight of arguments and reasoning going. The punishment with the usual methods is merciless and kills any attempt to actually have a second voice in any discussion. When people don't get the support they come for in the forum, they attack brutally.
People are looking mostly for support, and that's boring. By definition.
