In all honesty, when I first joined the channel I felt like I think what you do. However, once I stopeed asked completely stupid questions, and acting a bit more mature, everyone was really nice. I don't think there is an amount of unfairness. No one wants to site through a flame war. it doesn't matter if you were just "defending yourself." If you had presented your points in a logical, thought out matter, instead of screaming like you probably did, there would be no problem
If I'm wrong about what I said, then sorry, but I can imagine that is what happened.
