    Default TechPowerUp

    Is it just me or are the TechPowerUp forums a little caustic these days?

    It's almost as bad as Reddit.

    D-K effect hits hard at just about every social media form I can think of, but for the most part I'd say TPU vets tend to be pretty civil overall. I actually thought worse of that place before signing in.

    There are of course some vocal bad apples here and there...

    Maybe I am just spoiled; this forum seems more reasonable.

    These forums have may 50 really active users with only a few hundred guests at a time while a place like TechPowerUp has probably around 200 really active with over 10k guests constantly on the site. Any disparity like that will cause a huge difference in community. The bigger the site gets, usually the more caustic they become.

    I don't know.... Seems like whenever I butt heads with someone that's arguing for arguing sake over there, I look at their join date and it's like 10 years ago!

    And indeed, I've been proven wrong just in time with below exchange about fanless mode in Seasonic Core, or lack thereof
