This is one of those neverending stories... in fact, it's better to say that this forum is life - filled with hundreds of different of people with different points of view all playing a role. You have the people who want to inform others on things going on, people making jokes on what's happening, people openly bashing others for the said purpose of the site, people bashing people who bash, people who feed off of anger, people who just sit by and watch it happen, people who are opinionated, people who are offended, people who are frustrated, people who are ignorant, people who are curious, people who jump into the middle of the fray just to argue, people just not caring, people who are observant, people who are immature, people who think others are idiots for bashing at all, and everyone else in between. Hck, I'm even categorized into a few of these - it's a forum, it's interraction, it's life. We all play a role if you look at the big picture. Of course, what I'm saying doesn't much matter unless you take it to heart. A part of me can't help looking at things in a detached matter observing everything going on, while another part of me wants to jump in the fray and add my comments thinking that all this philosophical crap doesn't much matter in the end.
Also, like I said before, this whole big mess that's being created (bashers, immature peeps with nothing better to do than to get angry at others, people who get frustrated with the same questions being asked, bashers of the bashers, and so on...) relies a lot on the fact that we even have a separate place for bashing with the name "bashing" in it. Of course, human nature plays another big part, but this only adds fuel to the fire. But realize that it is practically impossible to take it off now without serious repercussions (I can't spell now... that just doesn't look right to me) - now that people know about the whole bashing thing, you'd just get these bashing posts, question posts (who's Tazmo?), and other nonsense in other areas. Might as well just completely defile one part of the website that people know what they're getting into (somone would have to be an idiot not to know what this specific section has in it) than other places. Besides, with only one moderator, keeping a place clean is a b*tch (and I realize why there is only one mod, seeing as you just can't trust any other newbie to come in and help out, especially if they might turn out to be a covert spy or whatnot...).
So, this (the bashing, the rudeness, the immaturity) will always always always continue happening over and over. It's the neverending story from hell. You don't have to like it, you don't have to accept it, but you just might want to realize it.
Have a great day and peace out.
