You say -
I can't say I enjoyed the arguments. More often than not when they descended into back and forth nonsense including insults I wanted to give up, but just didn't want to give the other person the satisfaction of having "beat" me.
I disagree profoundly that "on the other board, things like that tend to veer very quickly, and maturely, towards a mutual "agree to disagree" sort of state, with no one feeling like they've given up, lost, or lost face.
I believe the complete opposite to be true!
Because you have commented so strongly about your political beliefs specifically your opinion of Tory voters you may disagree with "plenty" on the other board but your political beliefs are very much that of the vast majority over there...try suggesting Boris is doing anything at all right ..anything even just to debate a subject .....and you will feel the full force against you...
Try posting something like this Ive just made up and see what reaction you would get
"As Boris Johnson, gamely battles with the Corona virus, he is doing a good job.
He is not to blame for the idiotic austerity imposed by his predecessors .
How much balanced debate would you get do you think?
As TRE has said recently on here we should all visit and comment where we feel most comfortable, its not a competition.....no need for either board to change ....
