Same here. It feels arrogant to think I would be on the minds of people here that much

But I doubt I will, and now there is so much about passive aggressiveness on the board maybe others will think twice before they do that. And maybe not. Blind items can be entertaining to read and figure out.
It is interesting to wonder if that thread has injected a need for more explicit aggression on the forum. Is there any correlation between the ever present "tell a member" thread and the rise/resurrections of these threads:
What do you hate?and even more directly, these beauties
The Rant Thread
What finally frustrates you?
Stupid thing(s) you've done/said today?
What ruins your day?
The "I Really Hate Myself Right Now" thread
Hate an INTJ? Tell us why!It seems to me, someone who has been here just seven months, that there has been a spate of hate threads recently. But maybe those who have been here longer are better judges of that.
Hate an INFJ? Tell us why!
INFJ Hate thread
ENFJs, why are you so fake?
Hate an INFP? Tell us why
What are some reasons INFPs are disliked?
And it is true, from my experience, that a newbie to the forum might be intimidated by the close-knit vibe this community gives. But Lark mentioned a good approach. A tip for newbies: substantive posts still outweigh fluff.
Oh, the lure of velvet ropes!
