90% of the time was a pretty interesting place, where controversial topics could be discussed and I actually found some posts really interesting from time to time (and even learnt things I didn't know).

The biggest problem was that some threads were degenerating to flame wars, pretty personal and aggressive quite fast.

Some people never understood that only beacuse you can talk about the most controversial topics, there still is the need to keep respecting each other and try to not take it personal.

A couple of times when I was getting angry myself, I just shut down the browser, listen to some peaceful music and avoided it for a couple of hours... problem solved.

If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
