Sorry if I'm hurting someone's sentiment, but is it just me who is seeing so much negative trend in the D forum about D itself?

Well, programmers are engineers, and engineers tend to focus on things that need improvement. That has the downside that the attitude might stealthily get negative. That is likely to be the base reason.

Too positive an attitude in a wrong woy would stall the development. That does not mean negativity is desirable, just that it's sometimes hard to say what's constructive criticism and what's complaining.

I don't remember seeing so much negative about Rust on rust forum and so on.

I don't feel the general attitude to be negative, I think many people are very positive here: Andrei, Ali and H.S.Teoh are excellent examples. And those who sound negative at times are being constructive.

It's true there are rant posts that fail to keep a good attitude, but I think they are usually from "outside" people. Regular D users are almost always reasonably nice.
