I post regularly on just 3 forums about things of interest to me.

There are only 6 moderators there. There is the site owner and one super moderator who does almost all of the moderation the rest of us are just there for backup and I mostly post about hardware issues pretty much as a regular member and have only once or twice used my moderation powers. It is a very quiet forum. I can't think of a single instance of trolling in all the time I've been there.
Amiga.org, on the other hand, is not quiet at all. I was on it when it was calmer and I left when it just started getting to the point it is at now. The moderators really have a lot to deal with so I have to give them some credit for wanting to moderate there at all. What has happened slowly over the years is that what was once a very Amiga centric forum that tended to go off topic quite a bit has evolved into something like an emotion drenched reality TV show made up of Amiga fans. That is entertaining in a way but the more serious people tend to leave a scene like that.
