Santtu's post was unfortunate, but even so, reading it now... I'm still at a loss of words. It was accusatory, quotes out of context... It's not a favorable way to foster communication and so... communication failed.
So I don't know what your point really is... if there is one tangible thing my S brain can grasp, it's that it is possible that sometimes people do railroad members more than it should happen... and yes, it does happen from time to time. I don't agree with the particulars and I certainly don't see it as cultural... so in the end, I just don't really understand.
Course, it is in the fluff zone, so I shouldn't take it too seriously... but I, as an ISTP, only have two modes: Fun and Serious
Forums are notorious for the behaviour you are describing... so maybe some desensitization is happening here...I don't spend a lot of time on forums, and this is the first one. So maybe that is true. But I have seen, the "In Real Life" version, of what I am talking about, and it fits.
A lot of it has to do with a change in communication style. One of the first rules - benefit of the doubt. Most people don't mean things badly but it is easy to take written communication out of context.
*shrug* Why is it wrong to tell your mate that if they don't do "this", then they are leaving? Same principle.Why? is what I am asking.
It goes along these lines; no one really cares... there is no need to bring it up. To bring it up is simply extremely bad manners, manipulative and is not seen in a very good light at all. Good communcation online requires a different set of rules... Instead it created an immediate us vs you, etc in a thread that broaches that topic.
If you will, you broke an unwritten taboo about open ended forums, that's all. No big deal, really... it's another thing about forums - small differences somehow become giant.
(FWIW, Park's native language isn't English, so it may be difficult to communicate across that.)
*shrug* Santtu and I don't see eye to eye for most things, I think we are very different people. But we can talk, still. A disagreement there isn't a universal disagreement. I've fought bitterly and fiery with one member only to support them in something else... if anything, that's the norm.If it is a natural part of human dynamics, It is a part of normal human dynamic I find to be wrong, and quite a bit more dangerous than a few unsavory characters. Keep in mind you were about to do the Santtu the very same thing. It is akin to me to the "loudest OP wins" in real life, or the ones with the most "social capital" unwittingly (or perhaps on purpose) controling points of view.
