They're pretty chill. But I've been frequenting these forums longer than this account. I had a different one, started in May 2007, but I don't use it anymore. But yeah, I like the people here. They're friendly, most of them aren't rabid fangirls/boys, and everyone has an overall good sense of humor.
Because I hate losing progress. Ever play a video game and get your file deleted? You have to do something you already did before just to get your progress back. I know that's a bad example, but that's essentially the same.
