I've been lurking on the forums for quite some time, but only recently signed up to join in the excitement of the iPhone 6 discussion. I've been frequenting multiple times a day for the last 3 or so weeks. I can't speak to the other forums on MacRumors, but it seems that many people in here are downright mean. Some of the posts I've read in response to others' questions are unbelievably sarcastic and penurious. Among the handful of other forums that I peruse, I've never encountered such disdain for new members or those that may not have as much knowledge of the topics being discussed. Most people come here to learn and share knowledge. The amount of things I've learned since becoming an active member is tremendous. The unfortunate part is that I haven't felt welcome to post my own threads or respond to others' threads because the number of times I've seen someone get completely flamed is off-putting. Some of the drama and immaturity feels like high school all over again. The very people that I'm referencing in this post are going to show up in this thread and do just that: flame me. Save your breath because I won't engage with you. I wanted to acknowledge the crap that goes down in here, my viewpoint as a "new" member, and hopefully help people realize what kind of atmosphere is getting fostered. I'm not looking for World War III and I'm not going to hide in a corner, I plan to frequent the forums in the same manner that I've been doing. I'm also no angel, I've had my days where I want to flame everyone/everything in sight. It happens, but in here it seems to happen A LOT. The takeaway message here is: lighten up, peeps. Life is good as an iPhone owner. Mods: You all do a great job. Sorry for the rant. Do what you will with this thread, but I hope it's semi-enlightening for the active iPhone forum population.
