For the most part everyone does their research and forms an opinion, and I don't think we have trolls per se. People have heated disagreements, but I've been on Civic forums and there's people who modify their cars that are straight up hostile to the people that are get optimum gas mileage. The closest thing as for as being cordial to allpar is the Saturnfansforums and I'm sure that's a dying site at this point.Yeah, people complain a lot about the level of negativity here, and I get it. Reading the comment sections in articles and forums elsewhere, I’ve come to realize that people here may not realize just how good people are here towards each other. It’s like a free for all at these other sites sometimes, full contact no holds barred.
Not to mention the level of sheer stupidity with the comments either. Comments here may be perceived as negative, but the comments are usually thoughtful...for the most part. (My own stupid attempts at humor notwithstanding )
