Well when you have someone screaming "shut up minority" there is little incentive for the silent to ever attempt to speak. A fairly hostile thread with mods making it clear they don't have any control over anything like this.
Probably better off just having those people you are talking about PM/message ioi and sauros.
Again, a light-hearted joke. The concept behind it was simple; I thought I'd use a political phrase in a thread that opposes political topics on the front page.
An example of a vgc member who took it as a joke (or so it seems): http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8526702
And I've already apologized for it. What more do you need?
