Thread Name: Why is this board so unpleasant?
Subject: Why is this board so unpleasant?
I came across Mudcat while looking for information and was bounced at the first post with an ad hominem attack from someone I'd never met who accused me of being someone else. Since then I've seen people insulted, bullying and victimisation by different groups and every kind of unpleasant sniping.

I don't find the folk scene unusually aggressive, so what is it about folkies that makes them so unpleasant on the internet? Or do the hard cases just happen to congregate here and rule the roost?
