IMO, this forum is different in that the dialogues are much longer and are much more focused on the emotional side of dieting. That's why it comes across as more compassionate compared to MFP.

I also believe that the posters here are older and are not trying to pretend to be as fit as fitness models (in other words, are not trying to show off!). Those in hysterics in MFP, as you mentioned, could be the younger crowd?

But to answer your question, IMO, a person can only behave rationally when they are at a stage of their jouney when they have accepted or know, truly know, that they are in it for the long haul. That's when we let go.
