I've spent some time this morning reading other watch forums. There seems to be a predictability to the way a lot of threads play out (thankfully none of this applies at UDWF):
Page 1: Introduction of thread by OP and initial responses
Page 2: First occurrence of differences of opinion, and basic bickering about who's right, why they're right, and why the other guy's wrong
Page 3: Name calling begins
Page 4: Huffy assertions that we will agree to disagree, and calls for the thread to be deleted or locked
Sometimes this can all happen in the space of four pages, and sometimes it runs ten pages, or even twenty five pages. But the pattern seems to be pretty iron clad.
