It may be one reason, but it's not just the layout that is putting me off. I've been a DR1 member for 14 years. When I first joined, I found it to be a wealth of information for newbies like me. And as my experiences grew I enjoyed contributing and helping others, in return for a "like".

Today, in my opinion it feels more like a platform for grumpy old men who love to argue behind the veil of anonymity. I also feel that the Off topic section has tainted this website. It is not possible to hold civilized discussion with so much diversity and division mainly from the American members.

The help section has now migrated to Facebook. There are some genuinely helpful people for expats there and all you have to do is click on their profile to see who they are.
You are correct. There is definitely a strong anti-American sentiment possessed within from the Brits.

In my defense, I'm only 49. Many of us have interacted with each other for years. It may seem like arguing, but I actually like logging in and seeing some of them. Even if I have a humorous it sarcastic reply. If it's a truly serious question and not some clown, I try my best to be honest.

I do not know much of the reaction score purpose, but it would be nice if I could trade in my trophy points for a DR1 windbreaker or golf cap.

I noticed I was just awarded a "serious likeable trophy". Any chance that comes with a free Presidente.
I wonder what that half tard wanna be mobster with inferiority issues that always needed likes, dislikes ,etc and was recently banned from off topic would say about this. Up till a few minutes ago I knew nothing about these awards.
They really should come with a free beer or as Caonabo mentioned a free hat.

I encountered a 1000 character limit while trying to post The President's speech from last night. What's up with this post length restriction?
