You're hitting on my biggest concern with this forum but not in the way you're alluding to. You talk of "some posters getting a kick out of inflaming liberals
". Why state it this way as if their aren't posters who get a kick out of inflaming conservatives? The impression I get reading this forum is that the preponderance of liberals here leads to some of them looking at the other side as though their a different species or something. There are bad apples among each and every group of people assembled. I wouldn't place blind trust in the good intentions of any person no matter who they are or what they represent.
My personal experience posting here goes like this...
Despite having never once championed Trump, proclaiming that I have not nor will ever vote for him, having in the past sung the praises of Bernie Sanders, Amy Klobuchar, and declaring that I'd be excited to vote for Pete Buttigieg, I can be assured that if I make a comment in criticism of a Democrat, one of either @timschochet
or @sho nuff
if not both among others, will come running in to criticize me and paint me as a Trump supporter. I have criticized Trump many times. I have criticized Republicans many times. I've openly expressed my disdain for both parties. Yet you know who has never attacked me after any of my criticisms of Republicans here? Answer: Any of the Conservatives here.
