It’s the all too frequent examples of one-upmanship, snobbery, vitriol and outright belligerence that is the biggest blight on these forums.
It makes the business of bug reporting, finding temporary fixes and the garnering of more general information an increasingly onerous task.
And I will go further by saying that, sadly, I have found - with a few notable exceptions - that it is becoming increasingly difficult to engage with like minded enthusiasts for the purposes of just, well … chewing the cud.
And off course, all this reflects badly on ALL OF US.
And I wonder how long MS are going to put up with it.
Frankly, if I were MS I would just shut the forums down.
And what a shame that would be because along with all the nonsense we would lose all the wisdom, insights, humour and other general good stuff too.
I reach for my tin hat.
