Default startrek.com board negativity.

Jeez, has anone been to the Startrek.com forums lately, all ive been seeing is people snapping at each other left and right. Well im glad that this board is around and that im able to chat with kind fans here. But boy, i think the Admins over there should do something to chill the board out, like have everyone gather around a cyber campfire and sing Kumbaya. Anyways theres my 2 cents worth.

Maybe an Iron John-type drum circle?

It never ceases to amaze me how quickly boards can degenerate into nursery school. That's why this place is so cool!

There does seem to be high percentage of new film supporters here, but although I'm not a member of them I've noticed a higher percentage of less supportive comments on a couple other sites also. Useful to remember there is a wealth of different opinion out there!!!

It seems all I've heard about startrek.com boards is negative. This board is usually great. Civilized discussions, conversations, it's a rare thing it seems among boards. I've been posting here since Feb I think. Usually check it daily, awesome discussion!

We've had our problems. But perhaps this thread will help me not to take it for granted

I don't know whether I support the new movie. But I understand your p osition.

That's why I stopped going to Startrek.com a long time ago. That board is too negative--so much so that it's just not worth it. This one is much better.
