The thing is, one can always ignore any post that feels a bit deriding, rude, negative, whatever.Phoenixbyrd wrote: ↑Tue Apr 13, 2021 2:40 pmVery much the LEAST welcoming Raspberry Pi community I have encountered has in fact been this very official Raspberry Pi community, both from it's users as well as it's mods. I'm glad you've helped people, but the snarky attitudes I've encountered and then the seemingly utter amazement that I'm the one with an attitude is garbage BS. That's the issue with a community like this, it's a clique, you're either with the "cool posters" or you're stuck with ridiculous useless garbage like hurr durr I just turn off my monitor and save monies! And why? IDK why, lack of a social life outside of moms basement making it hard to develop social connections maybe? Could also explain the shock and awe when people don't take their stupidity so kindly as they have come to expect from mommy calling them special on the daily.
But to insult the entire forum membership because one or two people have done that is not going to endear you to that forum membership in general. It's not going to attract any positive discussion in your thread, who would want to deal with such an abrasive person? It's not going to inspire anyone to help you.
In short it's better to bite your lip, save the abuse, ignore the nay sayers. I'm sure people you will find more agreeable will turn up. Anything else is not doing yourself any favours.
