So far as I can tell, approximately 1/3 of humans are assholes. Not annoying or won't listen to others, but assholes and dickheads ranging from 'basically a jerk' to 'fucking liar' to 'complete sociopath'.
Luckily the sociopaths are relatively rare, but their impact is completely outsized to their numbers; especially when so many of the jerkish set are easily led by liars willing to say whatever they want to hear.
Worse… They have normal distribution across political and religious lines.
Rusted Neuron is an invitation-only 'Intentional Community'. It is not intended to represent a specific focus, although the people you find here are generally intelligent, creative, and witty. Content and conduct rules are set by the community, not by fiat. The one thing we will not tolerate here is intolerance; you can agree to disagree, but you must treat others with respect.Currently the membership limit is 100 people and there are plenty of slots available. The goal is to try to replicate real-world community interaction and norms enforcement online. Keeping it small is intended to create a village atmosphere by staying well under Dunbar's Number.
