i frequently use another site some of you might have heard of called Allpoetry (not trying to plug it, just explaining) and i have been greatly amused and intrigued by the different feel of the two communities. there its more gut-reaction based, people speak what they think, they let their thoughts run away with them. tangents aren't uncommon, humor of varying quality and appropriateness abounds and arguments can occur but are always good-natured. i don't see that nearly to the same extent here. its very serious, very straight laced,you think everything through and make sure to cover every point, you stay on topic and can seem quite cold and dismissive at times. even the most heated of arguments there pale in comparison to just how deep a slight disagreement can be here. its just so much more calculated. these are my own observations, any thoughts? anything to add or anyone wishing to prove me wrong?
