    Default OT - Forum vs. Blog: Difference in posts

    I am often quite amazed at the difference between the type of posts here in the forum versus the comments left on the blog (main DJTT page). Here we are quite sedate, generally cheery and helpful. While on the blog some of the comments get quite aggressive and I'm-right-and-you're-wrong opinionated.

    The real difference struck me when the iPad opinion thread started here and the way we treat each other's points of view in that thread. Then I went back and read the "well this is just stupid" comments.

    Is it just me or is there that many different forum members vs. people who only read the blog?

    That's easy, the forums require you to login, the blogs don't. It's the idea of being attached to an entity that keeps most in check, and gives people a name to identify and familiarize with.

    Just general internet psychology, a whole lot of interesting articles about it

    I suppose that comes of the blog having a 'readership', whereas the forum is the 'community'.

    I'm just glad most of those people don't come over onto here just to raise hell.

    I read these forums and the blog, but not the comments to the blog. I've done it before, but the forums just seem better I suppose. I think there are also people who don't visit the forum, but only comment on the blog

    perhaps the forum could be better integrated with the blog replies? so you only need one login etc?

    you dont need to log in to the blog at all. Its an open format response platform.
