I very much value the community that's been built here, and like everyone else, I really enjoy hanging out in the comments section. But nothing poisons a community like ego. And nothing is less interesting than watching people pat themselves on the back for being polite to each other.
We have a good comments section here. But we don't have a perfect one. Part of understanding that is not planting your nose in the clouds and haughtily asserting the inferiority of other people's community. Much like your significant other isn't much interested in your complaining about your ex, I don't take it as a compliment when you complain about someone else's blog.
It's snobbery. On the internet.
