I think the problem he and I were addressing is:One person's bickering is another's discussion. Often when people complain about bickering what they actually mean is they don't like being disagreed with.
This site lists that there are currently 24824 members. While at the same time, there were only 10 actually online
"Total: 308 (members: 10, guests: 298)"

My working theory is many have joined; but few have stuck around. Many look as visitors, but do not join. If I was placing bets, I know where I'd put my money as the primary cause. Too many arguments about grammar or just circular arguments that no one actually want to solve or find common ground on... or stuff that has nothing to do with the topic at hand that go back and forth and on and on... kinda like that run on sentence just now .
The thought crossed my mind the other day. If I was a parent (with no MA background) researching which martial art to enroll my kid in. After reading portions of this site; I'd start looking into baseball or soccer.
Too much 'keyboard warring' as he put it. Not enough of the mutual respect and comraderery that should fill a place like this.
