    I have yet to read a thread here that doesn't have someone calling someone else names before the first page is even filled. Is there ever a serious discussion on this board or is it all about who can get the best put down?

    That's too much credit. Maybe kindergarten up to 3rd or 4th grade is more like it.

    Maybe you're being overly sensitive?

    Asshole.

    That's USMB.

    There are some very sharp posters and some very dull posters. Thicken your skin and you'll enjoy both differently, but immensely.

    Every so often I get to have a decent policy discussion with someone but it is soon spoiled by the derailment crew here, there is a core group of 5 or 6 "libertarians" who spoil everything they touch, there is no solution since it is exactly the same for every single discussion board on the Internet. It's like the real world where a small group of shitheads spoil everything good by abusing it.

    The logout button is a brilliant feature on boards.
