Agreed. I think the other side of the coin is that some threads get started in an effort to disprove someone else:
Thread 1: FR is crap
- someone replies that they think that people are generally happy
Thread 2: Let's prove that most people are unhappy
Thread 3: My brand of FR is crap
Thread 4: These threads are stupid, let's talk about how great they are
And it goes nuts.
The problem is that these threads are often times divide the membership and cause ill feelings among groups of people. You have the "FR cheerleaders", the "Debbie downers", and "oh, he's a troll" labels that get applied.
I would honestly believe that this was the middle of winter and folks had the camping blues. I'm surprised to see this level of angst in prime camping season.
