What makes a Debate Board "poster" tick?

I really wonder about this. I personally love this board. I love the candor, the difference of opinion, how people back up their arguments and the overall personalities that are here. I may read one post and think "yeah, she's absolutely without a doubt correct!" and then read the next one and think "oh, she's got a point, too" LOL.
From day one on ivillage, the debate boards (especially this one) have always drawn me in as opposed to the other boards.
I have to confess that i lurked over on the support board that was so "appalled" by the behavior over here to see what they would say about this current go around. Not that I was the least surprised that they thought everyone here was an insane bitch on a witchhunt just looking for a cat fight, I was just intrigued by why I after 3 years mostly lurking & more recently posting never felt that way about this board.
Why do I see intellegent back and forth debating (which CAN get heated & snarky due to anonymous nature of the board) an amazing group of women who are funny, intelligent and passionate, and someone else sees the complete opposite and is shocked and appalled by the board "behavior".
Anyway, I thought I would throw that out to see what other people think. Just been on my mind lately. Design
