    They were the keyboard warriors who reverted to insults when their opinions were challenged.
    They all had good knowledge but did not tolerate opposing views.
    I was not necessarily referring to (all) the guys mentioned, but I understand that it could have come across that way. More the fact that people with a different view to the mainstream are pushed aside; or people simply getting hostile towards a poster because they have different viewpoints.

    The problem is when "forum celebrities" start believing their own press and disregard the terms of service. Which is when they start acting like keyboard warriors.

    In many cases they only had an audience because of the forum - without their membership here they would have toiled in lonely anonymity like all of us.

    Victims of their own hubris in my view.

    Keyboard warriors don’t only exist on the open threads, some members try to keep their “image” clean by sending private messages rather than posting on the threads. members that now slander the banned members must remember that they themselves were banned before....
