The gameplay boards' community absolutely amaze me

It amazes me how people can just make greatly exaggerated claims and back it up with no evidence, yet be upvoted to the front page. It amazes me how people are allowed to get upvotes off of personal attacks that add nothing to the conversation. In order to have your voice be heard in the comments to these threads, you have to bring an argument that is much stronger than what the op claims, with much more evidence(beyond what should be necessary), and even then it's a coinflip if your post will be heard or silenced due to being downvoted into oblivion. Has anyone else noticed this trend?
Best New

We're testing a new feature that gives the option to view discussion comments in chronological order. Some testers have pointed out situations in which they feel a linear view could be helpful, so we'd like see how you guys make use of it.
