Because, its difficult to be a member here if you aren't already a know it all. I guess I'll just stick to my MSN communities, and other sites where people are willing to be connected.
I know this thread seems to have gotten a little bit off track, but no one has been attacking you personally. You actually don't need to know anything at all in order to be a part of this community. Just be willing to share, and hear what others have to share. I'll be the first to say that there's alot I don't know, and I usually ask more questions than I offer answers (I'm sure Nmaginate will back me up on that one ).

Like Rowe posted earlier, there are many forums in this community that don't get this heated because the subjects are not Issues/Politics. Most of the same people participate in the other forums, but the subject matter is entirely different.
I think this is the basis of the organized community that you've been looking for here. In one place we talk about music. In another, history. In another, cooking. In another, family. In another, relationships (WARNING:this one gets pretty hot too ). In another we play games. But here, in Issues/Politics, this is where we fight. Because here we talk about the things that really piss us off! Sometimes the things that really piss us off are eachother!
The thing I'd really like you to understand is that we are connected. We were connected before we ever came here. I won't speak for everyone, but I believe it's the reason why we came here.
