Let's go through this piece by piece:
The rhetorical value of hyperbolic language like this
I'm guessing this what you replied to.
is that it's so rare in these forums.
Do you agree with that?
Everyone's just so peppy and ra-ra about D all the time
Do you think anyone would perceive the forums this way?
it's very startling to see any dissent.
Did you think anyone would be startled by your remarks?
To put it plainly, the forums are characterized by a constant
hyperbolic complaints about D and even a week of exposure is
time to start tuning it out automatically. I don't read "D has an
atrocious ecosystem" and think, oh no, someone had better do
about that! Nor do I feel that I should get in front of this
attack on D's honor. What I think is, "if I ask this person what
even means by that, is he even going to tell me?"
You didn't, but I reckon it's option #1 after all:
