I see this behavior that spreads arbitrary blame of groups, and casts the
forum to observers as holding such blame prominently, in other open

As someone who has participated in stimulating the disruptive behaviors, it
is relieving to hear words countering them.  Part of me dreams of making a
bot to do so.

There is proof inside many peoples' electronics.  Proof that a marketing
group would contract development of a frightening virus.  A virus that
