I am usually a lurker. But, I want to say that years back when I have posted I have been roasted. It made me quite leary to post again. I think good behavior and welcoming attitudes and posts would encourage people to return after they visit once. Just my thoughts, Ignore if you disagree please.

There is so much anti-science sentiment why would we want to subject ourselves to it?

One of the websites I frequent (ham radio/PB scanners type) has a zero policy for personnel bashing and brand bashing. Like one strike and your membership is history. Off topic replies are given a warning to stay on topic.
Snarky replies like others replies are dumb will usually result in canceled membership.

Much more enjoyable to learn from others experience(s) and especially those that have vast knowledge and experience with a devise in question. Threads stay on topic.
Everyone gets a voice without the usual bash from known forum know it all types we have on a couple of forums on this website.

Been here for years but don't post as much as I used to. I got tired of the constant pointless arguments over things which are essentially just personal opinion and preference. On MANY subjects, there are multiple right answers, and the best one for given individuals isn't necessarily the same. I suspect there are others like me who are still around but just don't post that much anymore.

In terms of moderation, I also have observed a fair amount of bias, but perhaps the thread-deletion tactic (as opposed to editing) is meant to better account for that. (Example of biased moderation: Person A expresses moderate political opinion. Person B expresses less moderate opinion in the other direction. Moderator's opinion agrees more with B than A, so edit's A's post but not B's, even though B's is the more extreme.)

I also suspect a lot of people have gone to FB, but I personally can't stand FB and don't use it for anything. I suspect some have gone to YT, but I'm no fan of that either, preferring to read and write.

On the bright side, the overly zealous weight police aren't as active as they once were.

What gripes me a lot is when someone decides to reply with baloney on a subject that is bases on science. I get the impression that some people give equal credence to hearsay as they do to science. It's happened to me. I've been warned about being argumentative.

Don't forget scientists can be just as wrong as anyone. Remember when eggs were bad? Getting your feet X-rayed for shoe fitting was no big deal? When radium watch numbers were okay? Smoking was actually good for you? Lengthy morphine treatments were an accepted practice? Electroshock therapy was totally A-okay?

When they stick to "hard" science it's fine, but when they get to speculating based on limited data, that's when the train leaves the tracks. That's how they knew the Earth was round a couple thousand years ago. Pure mathematics.

Re: Hearsay/Rumor/Lies/Science well they have done multiple studies which show that 48% of this country will support a con-artist over someone who is relatively honest (At least nobody can find evidence of a crime)

48%

Re posting..... Interest in nearly all activities is like many other tinngs (look up bio-rythyms) it goes up, and down, and up and down. Just now it's down for many.

I always look for a post that teaches. And try to adhere to the same. Information is now primarily proprietary. So the premise is a learned customer is a less valued one. Applies when service is for sale by the vendor. I like the thought of reconstituting a marginal quality product into a superior one if possible.
Thank goodness I aged-out of my rebuilding business before rebuilding became extinct by chew and spit "new" replacements. Garbage meant to last 3 years then end up in landfill.

Using the infamous weight police as an example, I think many times that a post is seen as argumentative, objectionable, or difficult, it may simply be that many times the poster's prior experience / bias / PoV is (intentionally or not) not typed in:
"...Nothing wrong with towing a 12,000 # FW with a SRW 3500"

...instead of posting "I put some effort into staying within the numbers, but I'm not carried away with it and have had my trailer and towed it for several years, so in my view, there is....Nothing wrong with towing a 12,000 # FW with a SRW 3500"

Or saying "Overloaded vehicles will lead to legal liability" instead of

"I'm a practicing attorney and have done a few cases in my jurisdiction where the question of loads on vehicles are being debated and while these cases almost always settle (so they aren't reported), my clients have had to pay me to at least negotiate through the issue of overloading, so I always warn my clients that ....Overloaded vehicles will lead to legal liability ...that I'll have to address if you get in an accident."
