Subject: RE: Why is this board so unpleasant?
'The most important opinion likely to be offered on this forum is mine, and anyone who doesn't agree with that, is wrong!'

The above statement is in quotation marks because almost everyone on-site will agree with it, to a certain value of 'mine.' The only exception is the opinion the moderator when acting as a moderator. When Joe Offer posts as a member, it is likely that even his opinion may be argued with.

If some of the regular posters are grumpy old gits, well, they are experienced old gits, too. Anyone who doesn't want an opinion argued with, The choices are simple: Do not post it, couch in in careful, uncontroversial language, or grow a thicker skin and accept that opinions are personal, not universal.
