You guys have this hive mind/mob mentality
Don't know who that is, and I don't care.
you are incorrect. you and the trolls are the root of the problem. expanding that further, it is my long policy of giving the trolls a home that is the problem. you have decided to target the administration and moderators here. there wasn't anything in particular that led to this battle, other than probably boredom on your part. on most sites, the solution here would be to ban you. all of the trolls. but because i have made it a policy not to ban trolls, and have been overly kind to you ungrateful bastards, that means the mods here are forced to endure your abuse. of course, at some point, they might react by committing the unforgivable sin of deleting a post. this is not the corruption, as you have labeled it. the corruption began with giving you trolls too much freedom, which you have taken advantage of. the solution isn't to reward you guys for causing the problems in the first place. the solution is either, the trolls stop their pointless ego battles, or they trolls get banned.

you just made a giant post talking about winning.

Get rid of these problem causing assholes who don't keep things "just a forum" and you guys won't have so much drama to deal with.
we should all do our best to keep him happy.
