News   News : OSNews: Psychology of an OS Zealot
   posted by MikeB on 8-Apr-2003 8:38:21 (1305 reads)
Alan Fisher has written an OSNews guest editorial explaining his views and experiences with various user communities, including some unfortunate experiences with the Amiga Community.

"AmigaOS, well, quite frankly the usergroups in there are fighting against the most viscious breeds of trolls there have ever been, they do answer questions and give out good advice to anyone who asks for help, but for anyone just popping in to ask something, the flame wars in these groups are enough to scare off any protential user, its a shame really because at one point the Amiga's usergroup were one of the Amiga's most possitive aspects about owning one.

A good read and an important reason why we don't allow trolling and name calling at AmigaWorld. The flamewars may be entertaining to some, but in general the fighting makes us all look really bad.

Hopefully AmigaWorld will always continue to offer a friendly and constructive environment where also new Amiga users will feel right at home.
