Nice ratio.

I had a look at those Steve Hoffman forums, and yikes! I'll take irreverence over hard-core wankery any day. I prefer my unicorns slightly twisted but free to roam. YMMV.

I am all for giving people the respect they have earned, but if one earnestly posts in the lounge about liking Miley Cyrus, well...they would be foolish not to expect some negative attention.

When dealing with a lightly moderated forum, it's best not to take yourself or most anything that is said too seriously.

As far as the quality of the people who post there, see above. ^

That being said, it can't hurt anyone to be nicer. When all else fails there's always the ignore feature. Works for users, threads and forums.
