All the drama. It seems to be fairly petty, is a huge distraction, and makes me not want to come back which is sad. I'm just here for interesting reads to stay up to date on the wold and learn some shit.

Peeps need to learn to say "I disagree but that's ok lets just move on cause this isn't going anywhere. :)"

The drama has been here for over six months, constantly. There was the Defasher drama, the drama when emma left, the drama about ziq using alts to manipulate and decieve, the drama about the developer of some concensus platform who also left, amongst_clouds leaving, a lot of old transhumanists leaving, a lot of anprims leaving back in the day too, the drama over the fucking color of the Raddle frog, about the communist seal at the bottom of the page (which has since been removed), the drama about choosing new admins when leftous suddenly got attacked, oh mother fuck i could go on and on and on.

Some people here (we all know who, don't we?) is exceptionally good at spawning infighting, and they're not leaving anytime soon. The general unwritten rule seems to be: get used to the drama, or get out.

Funny how every thread like this fills up with spiteful passive aggressive alts making drama while complaining about alts and drama.

Ugh.

This, holy crap. Walk in here 2 minutes ago and the first thing I see is some drama about the matrix chat. What in the world is this?

I am seriously a clueless outsider about the drama and my first reaction was self-flagellation for not lurking longer or understanding the community better before I started posting links.

I'm terrified of adding more drama and more stress to a community that is already struggling.

I also see some ageism that might be just as invisible to you as my own bias and the failure of my bumbling good intentions towards supporting my trans sisters and brothers is to me and am just vain enough to think we might be able to calmly and dispassionately and mutually help each other out about that.

If I'm mistaken and my comments and links devolve into flaming and unwanted-poster-disposal strategies this could cause even more drama, which is the last thing I want to do. I'm tired of being a "token freak" and a "controversial character" and would prefer to leave you kind people in peace to work things out among yourselves.
