I don't see asking a question as jumping to a conclusion, exaggerating, or overgeneralizing. I do know people sometimes don't feel supported by it, but I think there's some tension between administration and support. I can administrate better if people inform me about questionable posts, but that's inevitably somewhat accusatory.

So for you, the cost of coming here may not outweigh the benefit. Is it so hard to ignore posts on other boards?
