it seems to me that a few people on oasis are getting very nasty in relation to others. i've been here nearly 2 years (including a long hiatus), and before my recent rejoining of this community, people seemed very friendly. but now, alot of attitude seems to be floating around, and it seems to do with our opinions on certain subjects.
everyone has the right to their opinion and the right to debate it as fiercely as they please, but god, some of what i've read here is so militant and the message that gets across is "I'M RIGHT, SO SHUT THE FUCK UP!" i have no problem with debate, as long as opinions are justified, etc WHICH THEY ARE, but i feel like we should be more tolerant of other people's views. Being the social minority that we collectively are, we should knew a thinng or two about tolerance and when it's lacking...
maybe the people have changed since i was last here, and are bringing their own, *ahem* flavour to oasis, but jeez, some manners would be nice.
so this isn't an attack, nor am i trying to get people to be any less passionate about their values, beliefs, ethics, etc it's more of an observation. i just think that a bit more tolerance, manners and nicer attitudes wouldnt go astray.
