I suspect there are a lot more readers out there who lurk at the conversations the regulars have due to a possible fear of being ostracized if they make a comment. I know a lot of times I remain silent and observe the battle brewing in a thread.

Two of the worst offenders are no longer with us. Post away, and if someone gets too jiggy, I'll deal with them.

This is the first forum I joined, about six years ago, when there were many more regulars and conversations. I noticed a big change when they opened the other WD forum.

This is my favorite forum because it really does feel like "Cheers". I can always count on an intelligent, well-thought out response, truthful, respectful, and also encouraging when necessary. Most here are around my age and I am more comfortable with that than with the teens and early twenty year olds that populate the majority of certain other forums, who have their futures mapped out and who know "everthing" there is to know about writing <sarcasm>. I like being able to sometimes be a goober and talk about Princess phones and '78s and not have to explain what they are then hear all the insensitive comments surrounding them.

I consider these people my writer friends and am truly grateful that when I need them, they are here for me.

@deloughy - The greatest advise I received from a poster was from someone who said they looked in on my post just because it was me. She went on to say she could barely get through the first paragraph because of the run on sentences. That was a very helpful comment, and it was from someone I respected. So I always try to remain open, and if I ask for a critique I hope to get a variety of opinions. They always help. JMO
