From my own experience on here, I have been noticing that many people have become more emotionally incline and less thoughtful. Meaning, emotions have become dominant over rationalization. Of course, this isn't just a problem on DDO, but everywhere.

My question to everyone is... why is this? Let's discuss the subject.

Because people are eating, shiitting, violent, sex-crazed beasts, and not precise, logic-driven robots. They react on instinct. They care less about the truth than about self-preservation. If you attack the beliefs they hold dear, they will fight back by any means necessary.

One good answer, anymore? Also, would you elaborate for us please?

because this site is just full of drama, hence why people leave. It's also because people are human beings. Emotions are bound to happen.

This answer is spot on:

To extend from this, self-preservation is more important than the truth; truth without self-preservation renders truth irrelevant. Sometimes the truth helps us, but sometimes the realisation of truth causes a conflict of interest that usually results in the truth being rejected or silenced.
