How forums turn nasty

There's a debate going on over at Cable Forums that really is pretty breathtaking. You can find it here. It starts off gently enough, but gets really personal and vindictive about half way through. No doubt this still has some way to go, but it does make you wonder why some folk can't just accept that their opinions are only opinions and beauty (in all its High Definition glory) is in the eye of the beholder. Even the venerable march.brown has been dragged into the debate.
I enjoy the various forums but I really dislike it when a sensible discussion is sidetracked by certain posters and why are they trolling on cable forums anyway? I pity the poor original poster, who was simply saying she was a little disappointed by the difference between the V+'s upscaling and true High Definition.
