When I am at work, alot of the time when it's slow I can come on this forum (currently at work right now) and just check it out. I love the supportive nature of this site, it's a vast difference from the other forum I'm a member of. Electrocalgary (a local forum for people in the Calgary region who love EDM (Electronic Dance Music) and its many variations) has in the last few years gone to ****. Basically I spend my whole day there fighting with people over the stupidest things. Electrocalgary teaches you one thing, and that is how to attack and destroy anybody who disagrees with you in any way, for any reason. It's sad really, because a few years ago the forum was an awsome resource, with a wide variety of people who liked many different forms of EDM. Now all it is is people who listen to Drum & Bass, bashing everybody else who posts anything that disagrees with them. The relevance of all this, and the reason I am telling you is it seems to be the latest trend in forums. I've seen quite a few forums go this way, though Electro is by far the worst, and if you can survive there, you can survive anywhere.
Here, people are respectful, nice, and generally very helpful, I suppose its the abundance of mature people, or the fact that if you act like an *** u get banned. I just wanted to say thanks to everybody who makes this such a positive environment, it's a great relief to be able to come here when I'm sick of all the immature bickering everywhere else, and have an intelligent conversation with great people and listen to hundreds of amazing innovations.
