Philosophy of this forum?

I was wondering how regulars and old hands would define the philosophy of this forum? People seem pretty kind to others which is very nice, not much in the way of arguments and nastiness which is so prevalent elsewhere on the Internet. Seems quite US-centric, but I suppose it is basically a US forum so duh. Beyond that what other vibe would you say it has?

We try to fight without bloodshed however bruises are sometimes unavoidable. Lots of empathy for true misfortune and real struggles, rather than wasting it on accidently tripped triggers.

Have to tiptoe around 911 though, many here have spoken of losses on that day.

Regularly wash your old hands of it and you won't catch the vibe.

We have lots of eclectic advice to give.

There used to be a bye-line (can't see where it's go to) which said "A regular corner coffee shop with no coffee and no shop" which seemed to sum it up for me.
Best place on the 'net, frankly. Thanks UT.

We got all the flame wars out of our system. This is a peaceful period in cellar history.

Come at me bro

It's, like, real people. Do it just like that.

And keep it hermetically sealed from social media, I almost got my balls chopped off for mentioning the other place.

See what I mean... tragic, gut-wrenching, and there are many more.

I don't think many people know how difficult it's been at times for UT to keep the lights on, but he did it and we win.
He deserves to get the girl and do the happily ever after. Thanks man.

Hehe glad to hear it. Hopefully the rest of the interwebs will follow suite in the fullness of time.

This is no ordinary forum. It's got huge pointy teeth.....

But really, it's a family. We actually bought a car for a guy that had a real need. Be a real person and you get treated like one. No joke.

Love you guise
