That's your opinion. I don't agree with that conclusion. I agree it happens sometimes, and that it happens in both directions and that there is a distracting amount of time spent on it. It doesn't seem to help that some seem to often want to put people into groups -- i.e. push for "I see a conflict between A and B people" rather than focus on "I see a brewing mismatch that we should probably address at the content level". That said... Track record does matter for what you might call "reputation of the poster" (no I don't mean the green notches in the profile). Take a look at the OP's post history and you see a dominance of "Tesla did something horrible and they better address it immediately" tone repeated. If your posts are read by most as "OMG, what is he/she complaining about this time" it's natural that people will assume you have an agenda and/or probably should have given up on Tesla as "too young" long ago rather than (apparently) being constantly disappointed. I seem to remember "<username> is unhappy again" threads being born for this reason in the past.
