I left a Linux forum a few years ago after a moderator chastised me for not being polite to a troll. It is a bad trend with fora, where trolls are considered more important than contributing members. Look at any Linux forum and there are only about half a dozen knowledgeable people. Most of them left because of the "polite at all costs help desk" mentality. If what is being described here is accurate, it is a shame that the decline of the internet forum is spreading to BSD.

I do not have a problem with light chatter, as long as it is isolated to an appropriate sub-forum. Unfortunately, when a forum with a few hundred or a couple thousand members only has five or six knowledgeable people, it is difficult to keep the clueless chatter out of the support sections.
