Is continued bickering on HRD forum really necessary??

    At about 1:10 into the clip, it sounds like they are using actual SSB radios for the radio effect.

    I don't know what hobbies you engage in, but trot over to some photography forums and observe the Canon - Nikon wars. Make this place seem like Sunday in the park with George. :p

    Most online forums are not happy places for the thin-skinned. ;)

    From a sociology viewpoint; it is far easier to hide behind a keyboard and express hostile feelings rather then echo the same sentiments in person.
    From my observations here on; paid subscribers tend to be more civil and cordial on these forums than non-subscriber ham members.

    My first thought when reading the header and first post was, "is there a sub-forum dedicated to Ham Radio Deluxe?" :)

    Interesting observation. I looked at my Ignore list, and it's exactly 50/50. Nothing scientific, since my sample is very small.

    What you describe is more pronounced, in my opinion, in places where anonymous postings are allowed.

    That's true. But I think the reason everybody here is noticeably more civil than the denizens of most Internet forums is that we all have our calls on display, not just some anonymous screen name like "soyboy231." ;)

    True. I have noticed the topics that tend to bring out the worst in posters here on the ZED are the ARRL, no-code hams, Tech enhancement privileges, antenna restrictions and HOAs. Rarely is there any discourse on other topic threads.
