It's been my tactic to diffuse the fireworks by mentioning the phenomenon a few weeks before the season opens. Lately, the biological waste product has come in acute juxtaposition with the environmental exchange unit later in the season. Hopefully, keeping on top of it and diffusing the tempers at the slightest hint, throws a wet blanket on those flame fests.I dunno CA, I'm seeing signs of this February rage fest all over the interweb. Another forum I mod on has a thread called "I LOL'd", obviously for jokes, etc. It turned into an all out flame war yesterday. I threatened to post gifs like this one if the guys kept it up. They kept it up.
Even cute pics of widdle puppies couldn't dissuade their anger.
And sometimes you just gotta start throwing the combatants out of the sand box before all hell breaks loose. It only takes a couple of trolls to drag others down to their level.
