You have my sympatly
When I read the responses to a post on DU3, I often get a feeling that it is a hunting ground where the compassionate are stalked by those without such feeling.

I felt like a home of mine was in decay, but still loved, before DU3. DU3 was never for me though.
I lurked instead of joining. While lurking I debated making a very concealed ID to join DU3 with. In the few conversations that I was motivated to join, the conversation quickly became one that I did not want to join. I finally conceded my interest and I only read DU3 when a search for information leads there. Even then it is often hard to extract good data. Even before DU3, it often seemed like sockpuppets were manipulating the Greatest and being protected as they hunted down people who posted real information. There are some great threads being produced on DU3, but exposed hearts get eaten as often as not. While this site is slow and often lonely the folk here all feel real and compassionate.
