Compared to the story forum, I’d say that the quality of discussion is higher here. On the other hand, people can also get away with much weirder and/or nastier behavior because the community is so resistant to “censorship.” I mean, some people even thought it would be wrong to get rid of Soldrethar.

I just hope that the Blizzard lurkers haven’t bothered to look at the General forum.

Don't worry. I email links to all my coworkers whenever something weird comes up.

Well, there are less people here, therefore less stupid people. Gems can come from both communities, as can idiocy.

You can't build a community by rigid design. This stuff evolves naturally, and giving people an avenue to express themselves is the best means to do that. The fact that things can get weird is a byproduct of it, but also means that when we speak to each other it's not a sudden revelation of who you're actually talking to and how to approach the conversation. In essence, the forum is more alive by virtue of the option to speak naturally. That hazing is part of this is actually an (oddly) good sign, because it means that the community is invested in its membership instead of just idly conversing around it.

Genesis has made some interesting threads...

There is the Mists of Pandaria Beta thread...

Not much has not been done before.

Oh, I like the weirdness, though it’s awkward to imagine CDev people reading it. The personal insults are what I could do without…and that’s part of the problem, I guess. Even if people here were willing to accept more strict moderation, they’d never agree on what kind of behavior should be punished. And before you knew it, there’d be a 40-page thread of weird and insulting arguments about that.

I swear, as soon as I roll back my posting people start complaining about how slow the forum is. What would you guys do without me?

The fact of the matter is:

If I recall It was silly to the point of arguing over Homo floresiensis bones. Which I'll admit was my stubbornness. God damned blizzard making me wrong about Trolls and Elves.
