Please ignore the posts of the current resident dunderheads and their ceaseless rants and/or whining!
I have to say that I originally came here looking for some help in understanding why what happened to me at WP happened, but pretty much all I experienced was bashing and abuse. I'd like to think that the bashing and abuse happened by the "resident dunderheads" you are referring to. I think the truth is, however, that said abuse came from those whose opinions here have been revered and appreciated.
And because of that, I see this forum as never having been any different than the untrustworthy Wikipedia. And that's seriously too bad. There was potential for this website to do some good in regard to opening the eyes of the internet public to what Wikipedia is really about. In the end, it was one of the best advertisements FOR Wikipedia.
In my opinion, anyway...
