Young people are not staying away from here because of grumpiness it any other form of abrasiveness.
You should see the carnage on the forums that young people do frequent. It’s a jungle out there.
This forum really has it together when it comes to conduct.
except that it's totally possible to be wildly toxic and condescending without profanity. which this forum frequently is. and the "no politics" rule is a joke. nothing reactionary or jingoistic ever gets cut.
