I'd say there' a good mix of humor and seriousness but the main thing is, everyone gets along and nobody ever seems to be fighting. Except for the occasional Barry Bonds thread or whatever, the debates here are usually conducted in a friendly manner without anyone taking anything personal. We can have really heated debates here, such as Chase Utley vs. Miguel Cabrera or something and it's just a bunch of people disagreeing with each other. But there's no name calling or anything like that so it's enjoyable and informative to read. And the mods are on top of things too, so flamers won't hang around for long.
