Sorry to hear you're leaving. Most everyone here tries to be helpful, offer advice and encouragement, share knowledge, etc. Don't judge our 180,000+ members by the replies of a few. We try our best to keep them under control.
When the spirits are low, when the day appears dark, when work becomes monotonous, when hope hardly seems worth having, just mount a bicycle and go out for a spin down the road, without thought on anything but the ride you are taking. — Arthur Conan Doyle
A few weeks is not enough time to get a real feel of how things are in BF.
I find that most people here are friendly and helpful. Some are trying to be
smarty pants with their replies at times(just joking around) and maybe you're
confusing that with rudeness.
It looks like you've been in some volatile threads. Some topics just inspire heated debate. There is also a certain culture to message boards that takes some getting used to. You should hang around. There are definitely friendly helpful folks here.
