I actually laughed a bit at the post, because there's a small amount
of truth to it. At its worst, I've seen enwiki's WP:AN's degrade into a
drama-laden dump, with bad faith assumed on entire posts. Just my two-cents
worth, but I'd suggest stepping back, laughing at ourselves, and taking a
lesson from the blog post. To an outside observer like the author, our
interactions on talk pages and discussions in the project namespace may come
across as jarring.

I'm not sure if it's still funny or maybe already depressing.
To me it sounds like a "let's blame a single (communication) tool as the
root of all society problems", while the tool just give more visibilities
to some tragic consequences of broader social dynamics.
I may as well make a diatrib on how blogs and novels, whose growth is
contributed by Amanda Filipacci behaviour, can lead to social disorders and
drama. Index Librorum Prohibitorum, we miss you so much.
