^ Standard board etiquette (not just here, but all Internet discussion boards) suggests not posting on heated topics until one has had a chance to establish oneself in the boards in less dramatic ways.

In going against this common sense approach, one risks the strong likelihood of being labeled a troll. It may seem unfair, but that's just how boards work.

I don't think we are trying to gang up on you. This thread was started because of a particular incident. So if we all know the incident, were a part of the incident, talked about the incident, are the ones who left after the incident, talked about why we left after the incident, know why we formed another board after this last incident, I think we all just think it odd for someone to tell us that that's not what happened.

To your original point: Are there issues with the board and could a newcomer find it difficult to join heated conversation, sure, but that's not what this topic is about. That's a different topic
