Is Fluther catering too much to the oversensitive and the paranoid?
I have only been here since March. I stayed around because this seemed an intelligent, witty, and sometimes outrageous crowd. I had never run into anything quite like it. What is happening now? Is this become a lowest common denominator wins? The first one with hurt feelings changes the landscape? In one of my first dialogues [about American contributions to the world’s art] @dpworkin got pissy with me and criticized my comment by saying “are you on the rag?” I didn’t like that very much, but I had no inclination to raise a stink about it. I answered him very coolly and rationally and the thread carried on. Later I just thought of his remark as typical of the outspoken nature of Fluther and almost amusing. I have never flagged a moderator. I feel like that is being a little tattletale. Does anyone else feel the same way?
