LOL. preach on, preach on.
The worst part is that all of these people are adults, some of them are old enough to be grandparents; they just aren't grown ups.
I feel like I need to explain that yes, sometimes there are unpleasant issues in life [that directly affect the community], but unpleasant doesn't automatically equal drama. Pointing out an unpleasant issue isn't drama. Trying to find a productive way to deal with an unpleasant issue isn't drama. Having an unpleasant issue thrust upon you by chance isn't drama.
Drama is when you make a big fuss about insignificant things and turn something simple into something complicated. Drama is when you take out your personal problems on the people around you. Drama is when you sow distrust and rumors.
I'm tired of having to deal with the crap because no one else will, but meanwhile they'll all still be happy to bitch about it. Being the grown up is a thankless job. Hell, being a human being is a thankless job. And I've had enough of that in my life already. It's still sad, though.
