Before I continue, can I say that this new thread can if you like, be treated as a one-off post, it's up to you, you'll see what I mean;-

I expect all of you have noticed how aggressive threads become these days, usually after around half a dozen posts, no matter who starts it, mod or member, what the topic is, from war right the way through to say, eating, in other words any by whom, & whatever the subject.

I am asking what all of you, every member or mod who regularly or occasionally posts, thinks the reasons are?, I honestly don't have a clue, because no matter how long the member who starts an argument has been with CF, from a brand new member to one who has been with us for years, some a lot lot longer than me, it seems to make no difference!, so your opinion guys, but please don't fixate on anyone individual, this has to be about why, not who, otherwise it may defeat the purpose by causing more arguments.
Than you.

Its obvious two peoaple have oposing opinions , i think it is ok people expressing their opinions and having an argument about their oposing opinions is ok but sometimes the mods will come down heavy handed and stop the argument or close the thread although it is about just aposing opinions concerning a certain matter ,
i think some people also just dont know when to stop or get bored and so think letds start a flame war for no reason

I think its quite simple, it comes down to the fact that more and more people are joining so your gonna get more differences of opinion.
