"Change" in MetaFilter culture? I know I'm newish, but I'm curious about something...

I'm writing in response to stoneweaver's
comment on the Offbeat Mama post wherein s/he writes:
I've been struggling to find a way of talking about my childhood with people who weren't raised in the same way environment. I was delighted to see this on the front page and excited to read the comments. But the comments just reinforce that I should keep my story to myself. Snark and condescension about the
right way to raise a child is limiting the voices you hear. It's a strangely conservative reaction for such a liberal place to have.
So my question and something I hope y'all can help me with, but when did MetaFilter get so reactionary towards the counterculture? I know that there's at least one group out there on an alt-sex site which was created purely because people asking questions about BDSM in AskMe were feeling ostracized and marginalized by the overwhelming negative answers they were receiving.
And now we're bringing this into parenting as well? When did all this start happening?
