I just wanted to bring this up but I don't know what other people think, but lately these forums seem to be going down hill, and down hill very quickly.
I first signed up because a lot of the discussion is fantastic, but I am finding myself less and less inclined to post dignified responses with proper fact making and arguments, and it's driving me crazy.
The number of times i've seen threads from either side of each of the parties they degrade into 'you're a fanboy' namecalling, because certain members can't seem to argue correct points, or point out the 'personal attacks' in threads rather than basing things on fact.
People like TheSource are what we need more of around here, he is one of the best members of this forum by far.
Now, Im not sure what we can do about this and please I would like everyone not to think this is directed particularly towards them, this i just a general issue with the forums at the moment. I love posting here, and some of the discussions on here are the best and most well formed discussions / disagreements / arguments that I have ever had on the e-nets and I enjoy that, refuting points back and forth with someone intellectually can be highly enjoyable.
At the moment I'm just personally getting frustrated and sick of the manner in which a lot of arguments are carried... and honestly, there is a lot of hostility going back and forth between the PS3, X360 and Wii gang at the moment...
Please, I urge you all to try and take your personal feelings out of things and try and argue and post about things basing it on facts, past and future analysis. If we can all take a leaf from Source's book then we will be on the right path.
I hope I don't upset people by bringing this up but I don't want to have to leave these forums, honestly I enjoy them too much.
