I said a community, not the community.

Sounds pretty far from accepting to me. Might even call it "unfriendly".
A lot of the "discourse" that pops out of the discord and causes people to get unfriendly towards one another stems directly from people being upset that not everyone agrees with their opinions. It's a sad fact of life, and if you're going to make controversial opinions you need to be prepared to know that not everyone will agree with you, and that the cast majority may in fact disagree. It can range from your opinion on the gays to your opinion on Sonic Unleashed.
I mean you mentioned about how you were trying to become a better person and to point out your flaws, but the moment I tell people that their problems with the discord may be self problems they're not acknowledging and working on I'm suddenly labeled as unfriendly? Just because I think people should be willing to take responsibility for their own behavior and actions and reflect on those in order to become a better person not only for the community on discord and Chao Island, but in general a better person for themselves I'm being "unfriendly" and unaccepting?
