I used to feel proud to be involved in the Amiga community, but more often than not I'm now feeling ashamed
"ashamed"

Well, thats a notion I get from time to time about "communities" when people unload immature comments. Then I take a step back and remember its usually just the vocal minority that acts beyond silly. Take any community, be it gaming, twitch, youtube, your local soccer team spectators, a night out at the bar/party... the list is endless; there will more or less always be twats that will try to pull people down, be it knowingly or they are just insecure/immature.
Imho its better to isolate/ignore those "troublemakers", and enjoy the fact that the majority of the community is supportive and nice.
