nah i feel like it is the same as usual. maybe u accidently got closer to it.
most annoyed i was at internet drama was the big big twitter wave of users coming to fedi last year.
tbh recently it calmed down in my experience.
if u mean corporate drama i agree. twitter, reddit, unity, LTT, all got so much outrage it was hard to stay away. but tbh i dont really care about those
I feel like drama is inescapable, unless you're some kind of sociopath, you have beliefs or people or whatever that you are passionate about and those things will inevitably draw you into conflict with others who couldn't care less about those things - the variable is how you respond (or don't)
I think drama will exist anytime people have to communicate, in all circumstances. Online platforms just encourage that to happen even more: with short messages sent very fast, often across language barriers or cultural differences, misunderstandings are highly likely, particularly of tone. That's not even mentioning how most recommendation systems will amplify stuff that causes you to react, to trigger even more drama. And everything you say can and will be held against you forever, since it's quite hard to make something disappear from the internet.
Try some communities where the barrier of entrance and of posting is a little higher, where messages go slower and are more thought out, where moderation is a thing, like forums or mailing lists. There will still be drama, definitely, but a lot less of it, and it is usually more manageable.
