I have been writing for a long time but up until now, haven't seriously considered having my work published. So I visit a few writing forums and there is one in particular that when you don't agree with or share the same opinion that the "regulars" have, they attack you. Or at least all goes well until one person does, then they gather 'round and throw their own stones. WTF? Aren't we all trying for the same thing here? What ever happened to discussion and open-mindedness and actually considering someone else's struggle to explain how they feel without attacking the person? I don't get it. This particular forum didn't used to be that way and not many of them are published, so I don't get where the attitude comes from. Do you know where it comes from? Is it worth considering the opinions of those who can't even begin to understand yours?
