Some analysis

Just one theory (taken at random)...

Take a look at the Leica forum - most posts include pictures.

Take a look at the Nikon FX forum - most posts do not include pictures.

Yes, this is an equipment forum, but...

People with Leica cameras (or even other cameras) take pictures and like to post and discuss them.

People with Nikon FX cameras are either A) always out taking pictures and do not have time to post and discuss them or B) they like to talk about equipment and do not take pictures (and therefore do not post or discuss them). For whatever reason.

Given the temperament that you outline I'd guess B) is happening around here. People who take pictures are generally very happy and fulfilled. People who do not are cranky and argumentative. Trolling, however, is simply a behavior (or even a sport) all its own outside of any specific genre.

Therefore, the solution to this forum atmosphere is for people to go take more pictures  Whether or not they post them here.
