I have noticed lately that many new members do not participate because people are very harsh on these forums. I do not think many users expect to be immediately classified and then thrown into massive debates. I also think that we should not be so harsh about telling new members to leave and stuff (as has been done). The reason for this is I believe we are scaring off new members who could be good forum and clan participants, and just making them lurk the forums. Its not good, and I don't know what can be done to fix it. Anyways, give me your thoughts guys (and girls), and I'm also going to tag @slydessertfox because he recognizes the problem as I do.
