Not everything that has been cited as a flame is a flame. It's a counter-opinion. A differing opinion, if presented responsibly, is not a personal attack. If you're not prepared for counter-opinions or debate, then perhaps the 3SA isn't the place for you. Agreed. However, - The 3SA is far from what it's being painted as in here. It's fairly tame and enjoyable with a tight-knit group of users. 3SA has one of the worst reputation of hostility, and this reputtation comes from people who visit (or have visited) the forum. This opinion does not come from a "fraction" either. I see EU fans, purist, bashers and gushers all say the same thing. I've seen this the entire 2-1/2 years of my time on these boards, and the spoiler mods have never acknowledge that the forum has an above average problem with hostilities. Perhaps the word "tight-knit" here is the problem. 3SA is the highest volume of traffic in any forum (or second highest, which gets more, 3SA or YJCC?). If a tight-knit group of spoiler oldbies says the forum is great, that does not reflect the general consensus of the people visiting the forum. EDIT - Maybe it's just me, but my experiences in 3SA have all been very good. I find helpful people willing to inform you of any updates in the spoiler world, some great fan art links I have found 3SA to be a great "just the facts" forum - meaning if you want to find out something or see something, it's a good place to go. It's the debates and discussions that I have concerns about.
