Off the Topic: Film lovers and frayed tempers?

Based on the tone of comments in the past few years, I’ve been wondering whether we’ve grown snarkier, less patient to understand, less inclined to hear someone out and have a dialogue, more likely to stick to our pre-formed opinions?

None of this is a problem, as such, and I am no fool in search of an utopian comments space. (I am on Twitter, so I know what it’s like out there.)

I am just thinking aloud if I’m nostalgising a bit and it was always like this? Or is it just the tone of recent (off the) topics that I am seeing these comments in?

Old-timers, care to weigh in?
