About the drama and toxicity since we’re still talking about it:
This place is extremely toxic right now, and constantly checking up on here is definitely an unhealthy habit of mine. But there are so many good people that I’ve met and great discussions about pop music that I’ve had that outweigh these low points. From my experience on the site, toxicity comes and goes. Sometimes the site is calm and not much is happening besides some music discussion. Other times, like now, the most toxic users are causing tons of drama. Luckily, there are also certain times where there’s an influx of new members, who are generally nice people, and I feel like the toxic people will either eventually learn their lesson or leave. I perfectly understand why people are wanting to leave right now, but I think the best thing for the forum is for drama-free COPers to focus on posting quality content about music and maybe even create fun events (games, megarates, etc.). We should be able to talk about music without drama (besides typical stan arguments about which artist is better/more successful).
