This stuck out to me the most because I realized when I read that sentence that is something I have become increasingly better at.

Most of the time I read through some discussions or arguments and start thinking up my response and as I finish reading all the posts I just decide it's not necessary to go on about.


Quoted for truth.

I think this is common, caused by 1) Laziness and 2) Fear of starting an argument. correct me if I'm wrong.

The second one is frustrating to me because that's part of what this thread is about... the lurking but not posting for fear of argument trend.

EDIT: Maybe you can answer this - what would make you more likely to want to engage in a conversation?

That^. Just take the time to Think before you post.

Hmm, I hadn´t really thought about it before, but when I read Purtle´s post I could completely relate to his feelings. It´s one of the reasons I drifted away from here again after I returned, everybody was just bickering. I don´t want to blame it all on the community though, because for me it also became harder and harder to sit down and actually play Line Rider. Today I played a little again, but I quickly gave up after about 15 minutes when I was in the mood for something else (like watching anime/movie, playing go, practicing some Japanese, sports, etc.) So for my case it will be hard to do something as to get me to post again. The only chance would be for me to be able to comment on Line Rider video´s without possibly getting harrassed verbally :p I grew reluctant to post feedback, because for me Line Rider is a lot like art, you either love something, or you don´t love it. E.g. It tends to be very hard to explain why you like a painting (imo) and to discuss ones feelings about a piece of art in the way people were doing here... It isn´t a lot of fun Inverted Onoz

guys, GUYS! just relax, and follow this easy 4-step guide to posting

1. Are you angry? don't post. calm down, think about your words.

2. don't take everything so seriously. tone is hard to inflict using text, the person you're about to go all ragey on could be joking.

3. if you find a post that doesn't comply with the rules of this site, don't moan and cry about it. report it to the proper authorities (YOU WILL RESPECT THEIR AUTHORITAH!)

4. are you Guest? if so then don't post.

For me it's LR first, then the community. even though i love you guys. <3 But as long as I still have fun playing the game and challenging myself, I'll be here.

I never really cared for the arguing, even though I was gone for awhile there. I've been here since '08 and you guys have shown me love ever since my introduction post. IRtL is my home. ^^

So is it hostility because of the inactivity or inactivity because of the hostility? :O

I find myself typing stuff in the box, and then stopping, reading it, and clicking back on my browser. I've been here for 5 years, this is by far my favourite website, but lately it's been... dumb. There's nothing worth being active for or any reason to have intelligent conversations. Rarely is there an intelligent debate thread that doesn't start with "QQ something is wrong fix it". There's not a lot of good tracks anymore to talk about, everything is basically null. With nothing good to talk about, while still wanting to be here and stay on the site, being humans we talk about random things, which commonly end in arguments. Thus, the site is now full of negative stuff, arguments, insults, and overall a bad environment.

It's different for different people, so I guess you're not wrong but you aren't right either?

For some, and sometimes for some, it's those things, sometimes it is other things as well.
