I gave a controversial answer to a recent question. In all response, in the comments, I have been:

  • called a douchebag
  • been insulted for being a SE employee
  • been called out as "admitting I don't know the answer" whereas I clearly do not think that

and so on, in addition to various other not very constructive, but at least not openly provocative comments.

The commenters are long time Skeptics users.

I would not normally not call this out, but unfortunately it has become apparently a trend. I could give more examples by other users on other posts.

I am not concerned about myself in particular, but about the community in general, and especially the experience our new users will have here.

Is this behavior acceptable, even if you don't agree or like my answer? Are we becoming an insular communityinsular community?
