Rant on the negativity in some threads.
Just a little rant. I apologize but I have to get it off my chest. It always seems like when I find something really cool after a little while the masses find it and it goes to crap. I was a lurker on this forum for some time(started backpacking last year) and when I decided to switch to a hammock and found this forum I was immediately impressed with the generosity, positivity, and general good will in this forum. I have never experienced anything like it in any other forum. I just had to become a donating member. Normally in other forums all I see is a thread started by a newb followed by at least 3 posts calling them an idiot for not using the search function. I hope this isn't a trend, but I have noticed more and more negativity in some of the threads lately. I wish I didn't have to post this in the members only section because 9 times out of 10 if you care enough to donate you care enough not to be a jerk. Thanks for letting me rant. Happy Hanging!
