Out of curiosity, I went out and tried to find a good online forum. I like DDO, and I don't plan on leaving, but I wanted to see if there was another forum of good quality...

Oh my...it was so bad...I stopped looking after 2 political forums. It was like our religion forum, except with politics, with a lot more posts...all I saw was attacks on other ideologies, with no reasonable insight to any topic...I saw one moderator post, and he was as cussing as me when I'm not in a good mood...

I'm never trying that again.

No, it's not. I mean, there are some parts of it that are entertaining... and about three times a year something really heartwarming will be out there, but on balance reddit is filled with hate-mongering asshats who want nothing more than to make other people's lives miserable.

Especially gay guys on reddit.

I have been a member of several online communities. I won't say what they are, for obvious reasons.. but yeah. Even though we have some wackos on here, on balance, DDO is probably the best.

I also like the fact that there is a wide cross-section of people on here. It's not just kids or mentally disturbed religious nuts; but actual people. And I will forever be grateful to DDO for connecting me to Bsh1.

You can customize your experience on there though. The news/ politics section is pretty interesting, the libertarian and marxist circle also pretty knowledgeable. The experience is mostly subreddit specific.

The default subs have a tendency to be circle jerk-ey though.

Considering I've been using the same avatar for 10 years, it shouldn't be too hard =)

I had seriously negative experiences with LGBT and gaybros. I liked the funny subreddit.

The only other community I've ever been part of is this Minecraft server called Nyancraft... but when the owner got really depressed and closed it, we all went our separate ways. The community tried to rebuild over several new spinoff servers.. but we never really all got back together and they all eventually failed. But if you're ever playing and you meet someone who kills everyone in Hunger games without being seen, you've met a player I trained to be a Minecraft WMD. If you've met a player who doesn't grief you but cleans your house and makes it look stylish, you've met someone I called a friend. And if you ever meet someone who refuses to use armor, why you've met a real man.

There are multiple LGBT subreddits. r/gaykink is pretty good. Not that I would know

I hear MMORPG's do generally have good communities, though I've never participated in one.
