Throughout the past couple of years, I have spent time on different track forums. Giving information and receiving information.
Occasionally, I would learn something new. But, for the most part, most of these forums spend a significant amount of trying to discredit valuable information -as opposed to relaying useful information.
Don't get me wrong, if someone is relaying invalid information then refute it. But why leave us with a vacuum in its place? What does that serve? Besides boosting one's ego.
Are there so many insecure people that need to tear others down in order to make themselves feel adequate?
