    BR is not the right place for this considering it applies to people who also don't have access to that area of the site.
    ....so...your OP was saying that you felt that the new trend of people replying with, "It's not such a big deal, " and, "Did you need to post this?" was talking about how productive and helpful those comments are? Or you were saying how they are unhelpful and upsetting for the poster of the thread? You can't talk about harshness negatively and then immediately backtrack and say, "Nooo I never said that it was disruptive or unhelpful!" Same goes for people being oversensitive. If folks are being oversensitive, refer to them specifically, not "soooome people".

    And if 90% of the people who you feel are contributing to the problem can see BR, then BR is appropriate.

    Bottom line. If you have an issue with an attitude exhibited by various posters, then quote them and call them out in the appropriate place. All you've done here is pitter patter around with vague callouts and even vaguer references in no man's land where people can't respond because it would be a "call out" or "lack of civility" or whatever folks want to call it this week because this is the wrong forum to say those things. It's damn near baiting and it's crap. If you have an issue with someone, suck it up and call them out or don't. This thread wasn't the appropriate or the mature way to handle it.
