I'm not talking about the technical support or the EP support staff, either. I'm talking about us, the users. I remember when this site used to be a supportive community. Sure, we'd go off on silly rants and throw around shovels full of sarcasm, but I've seen some things lately that have really disgusted me. When I see (supposedly) grown men over 30 berating young people and in one repulsive case, actually suggest that a teenage girl "blow her brains out all over her television", it makes me wonder if this community has passed the point of no return and is even worth it anymore. Seeing the amount of vicious responses to people who are asking real questions or seeking some real help makes me wonder how many questions we AREN'T getting these days, because surely some people see the venom directed at others and decide not to put themselves out there. I really hope this is just a phase for this user community, but I fear this may just be the new normal. If it is, positive contributors will continue to flee EP.
