There has been a lot of negativity on the geek lately, so let's gather around the festivus pole for an airing of the grievances, to release all our negativity into one thread of incredible toxicity, so as to make the geek a better place. I realize it is a few months early, but why not?


I'll go first





Skutsch- Your last poll didn't have any bacon on it. You must die. (not actual threat)

Toenail - your failure was to bring up someone else's failure about failing bacon which in turn makes me fail my goal of trying to not think about bacon (I was at like 7 hours btw). You must roll a die.

I know this is a joke, but I've seen some online posts with death threats that weren't. And I think it's just better if we don't muddy the waters and start allowing jokey death threats, because somewhere down the line somebody's going to say something and claim they were just joking when it's not at all clear if they were or weren't. Even if they were, it's often hard to tell tone online. There's no reason we need to joke about this.

FTFY.

I find myself feeling negative about a thread about negativity so that's a positive.

I'm positive you're helping spread the negativity. Reverse your charge.

Sometimes I feel like the forums are like that Monty Python 'Argument Clinic' sketch, that no matter what is posted, someone is going to argue the point.

Yes, and then that person might even run for president some day!

Or has there? I've seen a fair bit few posts (that I erroneously recall as being "a fair bit" due to confirmation bias) of complaining about negativity lately, but I don't think there's really all that much negativity itself. Especially if you want to compare BGG to almost any other site with forums (expansive or not).
