I know what you mean. I have been known to lamdaste asshats that stomp on new people.
Some instances I've really expected a PM or two from mods, but haven't yet. Asshat'n hasn't happened on this board yet. Well, maybe once or twice.
The ak forum and gunco are my recreation. Thst's mostly because I see that the regulars are more willing to nurture rather than use any excuse to "rub" their own ego by making someone else feel foolish.
