The mass exodus, or diaspora, of users when a flame war gets way out of hand. It starts with a couple of people who get flamed so bad that they abandon ship. Then other users start to notice that perfectly innocent writeups are getting dragged into the war. Pretty soon, even moderate opinions are flamed to within an inch of their lives and people just get fed-up and leave.

Are we seeing a flame diaspora amongst the everythingians? I know of a couple of small-time noders who have packed it all in. And even some of the everything veterans haven't been on all that much. Have we gone too far?
