Why so much hostility?
 
Any one else noticing a definite upward trend in the amount of outright attacks in the forums lately? How much does it cost someone to choose to be civil instead? Or is it all my sensitive whittle imaginaShun getting carried away?:o

Thoughts? This is a kick-ass hardware forum, I for one would love to see it remain as such.

well, the politics/religion forum has always been that way. i mean, people cant win debates so they end up attacking the person instead of the issue. it happens though.

but UDawg and Mastermuncher, man i love watchin those guys go at it. its awesome to see them pull facts out and just downright debate. then they throw in personal attacks for a little humor. its great :D

The political forum became a battleground some years ago, and will most likely remain so until the Dalek Invasion wipes out the human race...

I have observed some attacks in the hardware forums too, but they were from some new member who got promptly banned for his atrocities...

What I don't understand is why the atheists throw such tantrums whenever a discussion about religion is held. Why do they care. I thought that the whole idea about atheithism is to not believe and concern yourself with anything that you can't have a firm grasp of ("A ghostly man who doesn't show himself"). Mind you those guys, I believe, do not even have a firm grasp of science but still they profess ABSOLUTE faith in its ability to explain anything.

Yeah the political and religious forums do get the brunt of it, just seems even folks in the drivers/gaming even general hardware forums are getting Nasty on occasion. Well, I'm sure it comes and goes...

We don't moderate the Politcal Forums is why they get so bad at times. It's enter at your own risk. I do go in at times if neccesary but only if I get complaints. During launches (not just NVIDIA's) we get a lot of traffic that moves through. Some are rude and sometimes regular members get wacked out. Things will settle down soon. :) Anyone can PM if they are having a problem in the forums. I will do my best to solve the problem.

I hope your not alluding to yourself.

Anything remotely anti-Sony/anti-EA would ever see the light of day. I don't think you could be trusted with that kind of power to be honest.
