Maybe it's just me, but it seems like here recently there is a lot of flaming and BS going on in a lot of threads. I'm not talking about threads going off topic but more actual flaming, name calling, insults, etc. Stuff that would get your teeth knocked out at a bar. I'm finding myself on here less just because it's frustrating and irritating to have to sift through pages of stupid arguments to find actual useful information. A lot of it seems to come from the same members too. Even after reporting posts nothing seems to change. I'm on multiple forums and this one seems to be the most hostile with is rather unfortunate. I guess this is more venting/ranting than anything.

I am starting to get tired of the damper cuts... It was funny at first but it cannot be the only joke...

I am relatively new here and it only took about 2 days before I tired of the damper comments.

I am part of a Dallas Cowboys forum and it is almost as toxic as FB and Twitter. This board is much more civil than that.

You think this place is bad? Try flying Southwest Airlines these days. 🥊 🤼🥋

I think this past year has shortened everyone’s fuses.

Hopefully, it all ends soon.

I've got a total of 3 people in my ignore filter. It helps, but I can still see all the angry responses to those same guys all the time. So yeah, hanging around a bit less myself. There's great people here but the signal to noise ratio isn't so good anymore. Ah well, same story everywhere. There's always someone to suck the fun out of a discussion.

But, I'm in Wisconsin, summer is here and it's time to get outside and do stuff anyway rather than sit and read forum debates.

Guilty. On the damper portion anyway, hopefully not flaming. I try to help where I can and offer something of value if I happen to have an answer. Or get in another damper joke if it entertains me. People liking or responding to my damper posts just encourages me. :p
From my perspective, there isn't much new here. 99% of the topics have been covered and a search will turn up answers. Gen5 Rangers have been out for a while so most of the topics have been covered but I still check in for entertainment value or the occasional new item.
Now with the new found freedom I find since the year of covid is over, I'm spending less time here especially since the weather is getting better.
Time to go out and enjoy life and not worry about what problems people are finding with their Rangers to complain about. After all if you are looking for something to complain about, my opinion isn't likely to change yours. :bandit:
