I left Scout's forum because if this type of issue happening over there. Anything you say that someone doesn't agree, either you get banned, ignored or verbally attacked.
I see that happening here now. As a new/lurker, I feel very cautious to respond or have a differing opinion contrary to the masses.
I don't understand why the downvoting is here anyway, because it seems to censor differing opinions and doesn't allow for diverse thinking.
I would like to have the site revise it's view on down-voting.
