I don't like certain people around the community but I can tolerate them. If they have something productive to say, I have no issues listening to them and giving an unbiased opinion. At least attempting to. I try to treat others like I would like to be treated. I don't act like someone I am not in real life.
For the most part, I think we all have one greater goal than our issues with each other, and that is this game. We are all adults, as was pointed out above, and I think most adults have the ability to communicate with each other in a positive and structured way.
Instead of posting as a reaction, maybe read the post, and respond at a later time. I just ignore people who are trolling, dumb, insulting, trying to get a rise out of you because they know they can. When you respond, you give them satisfaction. That is the entire reason they are doing it. If everyone just tries to be the bigger man, the problem will go away.
Naturally, that will not happen 100%, but if even half of us can be the bigger man/woman, the other will either realize nobody is listening, caring, or hopefully the admins will be able to take control of it. You all seem to have pretty good/fair judgement. I wouldn't worry about pleasing everyone.
Everyone is different and everyone has their own issues and grew up in different atmospheres. We all deal with things differently. I don't think people are naturally mean or assholes just to be mean and assholes, personally. I know I have the ability to realize these things and always make an attempt to step away from the situation.
We need to realize that this is WC. A game which brings some sort of happiness to each and every one of us otherwise our dumbasses would not be here 15+ years later. Be the bigger men/women for the greater cause, the community, and the game itself.
