DISCLAIMER: The following opinion / post is that of the posting member only. It does not reflect the views of the group's owner, moderators, or members.
Throughout the years, I've been a member of a variety of 1:6 discussion covering a variety of 1:6 genres and interests. Every 1:6 discussion group whether it's an actual discussion group forum or a social media discussion group have its pros and cons.
There are some who may believe and feel that 1:6 discussion groups should not have any kind of negativity whatsoever at all. To me . . . that comes off as a being "HAPPY HAPPY JOY JOY".
I understand there are some 1:6 discussion groups where "negativity" is a recurring theme in various ways ranging from high strung admins, moderators, members, etc. along with fanatical favoritism towards a particular brand, etc. as well as non-stop plethora of very critical and harsh perspectives and views of this and that.
With that said . . . the intent and purpose of any 1:6 discussion group . . . more or less . . . is not about negativity . . . though there are some that are perceived and viewed that way.
IMHO . . . and mine alone for this discussion / post . . . there will be discussions at times about the good, the bad, and the ugly of the 1:6 hobby ranging from suck @$$ figures and poor practices of 1:6 brands, 1:6 vendors, etc. That is a reality. Granted, there may be an occasional trend of where there is more than the usual instances of the preceding due to circumstances and timing.
There are many of us who belong to different 1:6 discussion groups. I know that. That is the reality. Some of us may be more selective on where we choose to actively / regularly participate. I understand that. I do the same.
I just felt the need to address this since I have a reputation for addressing the elephant in the room considering I've been the elephant in the room at times.
I want everyone to enjoy their stay here with realistic and reasonable expectations.
That's it. If you read all this, then thank you.
