First, full disclosure: I'm 5' 8 1/2," 130 lbs. I admit that I don't belong in here. But every time I stop by this forum, I can't help noticing that the Clydesdales/Athenas forum is an oasis of civility and thoughtfulness and mutual support. Seems like about every third thread on the other forums is just a few comments away from degenerating into namecalling and adolescent internet abuse. I don't think I've ever seen that happening on this forum.
Not to make you blush, but why is this forum consistently so much more civilized than the others? Any ideas?
