One quote: ” … one of the biggest culprits is self-sabotage through these competitive bullying contests where everyone sees who can come up with the most creative and scathing remark. Who in the world would want to be around that kind of energy?”

Just want to point out that this isn’t a hallmark only of classical music. (Meaning, for the sake of your own sanity, never get suckered into a conversation about jazz with an ignorant suburban white boy.)
