It's amazing to me not that it started that way, but has mostly remained that way.

You do see some political agendas revealed here from time to time, and there are certainly a few celebrity posters who get upvoted just based on who they are not always what they are saying. But by and large it's a very flame/troll-free experience.

Kudos to dang and other mods who step in when the usual downvote/flag mechanisms aren't working.
