The mass exodus
, or diaspora
, of user
s when a flame war
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 writeup
s 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?
