General censure over forums, while not worse on SitePoint, is universal
I support business121's claim. Sure he doesn't take the required care in his writing (e.g. he is too lazy for duly capitalizing), and SitePoint is among the "less worse" forums (another testimony is the sensible and moderate replies he got), yet it remains that even SP does put a burden of anti-progress, anti-openness of mind and thinking, over any person thinking of submitting a message going the slightest outside the beaten paths; as a result, the most important questions remain unsolved and even unaddressed.
I have many examples, but God prevent me from mentioning them here, or I would be bashed once more; let's me recall just one single smallest of them, on my own case: see how a very rare thread I dared to initiate, Absolute and Complete Time, was 1st inflated out of proportions by clever nitpickings, then abruptly closed, for absolutely no admittable reason, right after I was deeply dishonestly and falsely portrayed (even if through skillful implications and insinuations, not honest upfront affirmations), thus barring me from any reply to this intentional and well-organized (even if small enough for me to recall it) public offense. Of course this question would be shared by many people, but will be publicly addressed by none, after seeing what happened to the only who dared.
Since that day I have been even more reluctant to post on SitePoint, particularly about Date and Time issues despite my achievements in that (modest) particular field since 1992 (my last post about it, Mandatory in Written-Date-and-Time: 3EN Month; TOG; DOW, was extremely prudent and restraint; and despite the work and service it hopefully brings to readers, got no reply, which by itself is enough to prove the general bias this forum, while good as a whole, maintains as all other forums over posts and posters).
