I think the merger has largely been successful as the depth of discussions has picked up. But I do agree with RedEye in that there seems to be a trend toward more people putting their feet in the sand and firmly positioning themselves while striking at those that don't join them. The mocking of Baker, certain players and certain ideals seems to be going a bit overboard recently.
I'd almost characterize these as timeless traditions on Redszone. I can be a little oblivious sometimes, but I haven't noticed an uptick in these types of threads lately. In fact, it seems like I haven't seen a "we should stone Dusty in the streets" thread in a while.
